Posse Program

The Amador County Sheriff’s Office Posse is a team that was designed to develop and sustain partnerships with the residents of our community by offering volunteer opportunities in support of the mission of the Sheriff’s Office by helping the citizens of Amador County. Posse Positions are available to assist with administrative support, field operations, and public events.

The Posse is supervised, as a collateral duty assignment, by a lieutenant and a sergeant. Posse members receive training in leadership, community policing and crime prevention. Posse members are encouraged to attempt to qualify for all prospective duties; however, individuals that wish to limit their participation to a singular type of assignment are also permitted.
Administrative Support Volunteers will assist Sheriff’s Office staff with clerical and standard administrative duties within the office environment.
Field Operations Volunteers will be required to interact with the public, Sheriff’s Office staff, and representatives from allied agencies. Field Operations volunteers will also be required to operate Sheriff’s Office volunteer vehicles and utilize communications equipment.
Public events will allow Posse members to support the Sheriff’s Office and the community by assisting with traffic control, public relations, and foot patrols. Volunteers serving at public events will not be required to operate Sheriff’s Office vehicles.
If you are interested in joining the Posse program, or have a public event that would benefit from our participation, use the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the page.
