Report a Crime in Jail

Texas Rangers Regional Offices

The Texas Rangers are charged with investigating criminal acts inside county jails. So it is the Rangers you should write or call about assaults, rapes, extortion, killings, etc. because the Texas Commission on Jail Standards does NOT investigate those criminal acts.

We do hear from families who report to them. Most of the time, they are treated politely—and then the family doesn’t hear from them again. Once in a while, the Rangers actually get back to the family and tell them what they found in their investigation.

The following is information about an interesting “Specialized Program

Public Corruption Unit
The 81st session of the Texas Legislature passed HB2086; this bill created the Public Corruption Unit within the Texas Department of Public Safety, under the responsibility of the Texas Ranger Division.  The Texas Rangers are committed to fighting public corruption, as it relates to public officials, law enforcement officers, and others that hold a position of public trust.  Fighting corruption is vital to preserving our democracy, protecting our borders, and securing our communities.

Texas Jail Project suggests that this unit do more investigation of sheriffs departments whose officers ignore laws and regulations.
