Pinal County Sheriff's Office launches new Citizens Posse

pcso-badge

Pinal County covers nearly 5,400 square miles and is approximately the size of Connecticut. While our deputies do everything they can to be available at a moment's notice, in a hypothetical major emergency situation or time of wide-spread unrest, they may need assistance suppressing lawlessness and defending the county.

"As Sheriff of Pinal County, I am given the authority to deputize civilians to assist in law enforcement. While we hope such an action is never required, we want to make sure those willing to step into the role are trained and ready" 

Sheriff Mark Lamb

The new Citizens Posse program offers a training course designed to show residents the reality of Police Work. In this four hour course, participants will learn the basics of constitutional law, search and seizure, basic firearm safety, home safety, and the use of force. There will also be an option to practice scenarios on our new virtual simulator with one of our instructors.

While we never know what the future will hold, we want to be prepared to protect our families and communities.

Each applicant will be required to undergo a minimal background check and sign a waiver release form. Upon completion of the Citizens Posse training, a certificate of completion and an ID card will be issued. This course is open to all residents, not just those in Pinal County.
