The Texas Rangers is a law enforcement agency with statewide jurisdiction based in Austin, Texas.

The Rangers have taken part in many of the most important events of Texas history and were involved in some of the most well known criminal cases in the history of the Old West, such as those of gunfighter John Wesley Hardin, bank robber Sam Bass, and outlaws Bonnie and Clyde.

The Texas Rangers were unofficially created by Stephen F. Austin in 1823 and formally constituted in 1835.

As of 2005, there were 118 active Rangers.
