Former Oklahoma game warden Paul Cornett has joined the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association as a special ranger for District 3 in Oklahoma. He will be based in Sulphur.
District 3 includes Caddo, Canadian, Carter, Cleveland, Comanche, Custer, Garvin, Grady, Hughes, Johnston, Kiowa, Love, Marshall, McClain, Murray, Oklahoma, Pontotoc, Pottawatomie, Seminole, Stephens, and Washita counties.
“Paul has a strong record of effective law enforcement,” said Larry Gray, executive director of law enforcement and theft prevention for the association. “His contacts throughout Oklahoma and his good working relationships with those in the law enforcement community, as well as his knowledge of the livestock and ranching industries, make him a great asset to our organization. I welcome him to TSCRA and look forward to working with him.”
Cornett has more than 18 years of law enforcement experience. He served as an Oklahoma game warden for 14 years, two years as an investigator for the Woodward County Sheriff's Department and most recently as a special agent for the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry where he investigated cattle theft and other agriculture related crime.
The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association has 30 special rangers stationed strategically throughout Texas and Oklahoma who have in-depth knowledge of the cattle industry and are trained in all facets of law enforcement.
All the special rangers are commissioned by the Texas Public Safety Department and/or the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. To contact Cornett, call 580-334-1017. For more information about the association, go to www.tscra.org.
