North Texas – Texas Ranger Anthony “Tony” Bradford has announced his retirement from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) after twenty-seven years of faithful and dedicated service to the State of Texas. Ranger Bradford began his career as a Highway Patrolman in Decatur, where he served for six years. He was then promoted to Sergeant-Investigator in the Criminal Investigations Division and served for six years in that capacity; in 2008, he was promoted to the Texas Ranger Division and has been stationed in Parker and Palo Pinto County for the last fifteen years, investigating some of the most serious crimes in the State. Ranger Bradford’s calm demeanor, presence, and extensive experience as a Ranger have been welcomed and sought during these investigations. Before applying with DPS, Ranger Bradford served in the U.S. Army as a Military Policeman. We are thankful for Ranger Bradford’s service to his Country, State, and the citizens of Parker and Palo Pinto Counties.
