Included are Public Safety Commission minutes, central files of the senior ranger captains of the Texas Rangers headquartered in Austin, Criminal Law Enforcement Division investigation files, training records, files of the Legal Services Section, records of the Public Information Office, and Office of Defense and Disaster Relief records. Public Safety Commission minutes document discussions and actions taken at the meetings of the three-member policy-making body of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Ranger records are largely company files in which captains stationed throughout the state in six companies (A through F) made reports back to the senior ranger captain, and investigation files containing records generated in the course of investigations undertaken by ranger companies. Criminal Law Enforcement Division investigation files document the functions of DPS in crime investigation, as well as crime suppression and control. Training records document two kinds of training: all field service recruit schools, lasting two to five months; and also some of the classes, generally lasting from three days to a week but occasionally having a duration of several months, that were offered by DPS as a type of continuing education for Texas peace officers, other Texas state agencies with a law enforcement or investigatory arm, and several groups of foreign police officers. Public hearing files and publication files provide information on portions of the activities of the Legal Services Section. Public Information Office files document the public relations efforts of the agency, from traffic and criminal law enforcement issues to the celebration of the Bicentennial and Sesquicentennial and the acceptance of the gift of an airplane. Office of Defense and Disaster Relief records document the plans and actions of the DPS in preparing for natural and man-made disasters, and coordinating relief efforts in those emergencies.
