Pinal County Sheriff's Office starting new volunteer posse group

FLORENCE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The Pinal County Sheriff's Office is creating a different posse program to help people protect their community.

The PCSO Citizens Posse will be a volunteer-based group that will help out deputies in enforcing the law during a major incident. They won't be patrolling or assisting deputies on a daily basis.

Those who want to be posse members will have to take a four-hour training course on constitutional law, search and seizure, basic firearm safety, home safety, and the use of force. There will also be an option for trainees to practice in a virtual simulator with an instructor. That information will also be helpful in protecting their families.

“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,” said Sheriff Mark Lamb.

1. One question...

Will these 'patriots' be protecting the area of the trump wall that could no withstand 35 MPH winds last week?

3. Hate to say it, but I'd just as soon have trump's goons show up than a posse of George Zimmermans

and 3%ers. Better to have neither.
