Posse formed by mountain search/rescue volunteers
A new organization has been formed within Lincoln County. The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Posse (LCSP) is a mounted search and rescue team of volunteers, appointed by the Lincoln County Sheriff, to assist in search and rescue operations when called upon by providing first-class horsemanship, first aid and any additional support to the Lincoln County Sheriff. The Posse is self-financed through membership dues, fundraisers and donations.
The group is currently in the beginning phases of development and is in need of more dedicated volunteers to continue the forward movement of the organization. In November 2016, the current volunteers worked on developing by-laws and standard operating procedures. Getting the by-laws and standard operating procedures finalized was a huge accomplishment for the volunteers. At the 2016 Lincoln County Fair, members volunteered their time by serving breakfast alongside Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office personnel. As our group grows, we look forward to participating in more community-minded activities. We hope to see you on the parade route this year.Give us a big wave! We look forward to meeting and visiting with our neighbors and getting to know them better.
As a Posse member you will enjoy public service, the western horse, participating in local events and serving the sheriff and county as a volunteer.
Join us for our monthly posse meeting on the second Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. in Davenport at the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. We welcome anyone who may be interested in our group. For more information, contact Captain Ken Horner at 509-796-2011.
