 Jason Taylor is the new Chief of the Texas Rangers. Taylor previously served as Regional Director of DPS Region 2 in Houston from April 2018, which consists of 35 counties in Southeast Texas. Before that, Taylor was the Company Commander of Texas Ranger Company “A” in Houston.

 

Taylor began his more than 20+ year career with DPS as a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper in 1998. He also served as a Sergeant/Investigator with the Criminal Investigations Division in the Special Crimes Service in Garland, and the DPS Criminal Intelligence Service in Houston.

 

Taylor was then accepted into the Texas Rangers Division – his first assignment was with Company “F” - Waco and later with Company “A” - Houston. He promoted to Ranger Lieutenant in 2011, Captain in 2014, and was subsequently assigned to oversee the Public Integrity Unit (PIU) at Austin Headquarters before promoting to Ranger Major in Houston.

 

Taylor earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Sam Houston State University, and is a graduate of the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command. He volunteers for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, where he serves on the Emergency Response Team. He is a four-time recipient of the Houston 100 Club Officer of the Year Award and has received other awards and commendations, including a DPS Regional Commander’s Award and a Ranger Company Commander’s Award. He is married and has two children.
