Citizens Posse


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 widespread unrest, they may need assistance suppressing lawlessness and defending the county.


The Citizens Posse Program offers a training course designed to show residents the reality of Police Work. In this 4-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 range with one of our instructors.

Due to the overwhelming response, we are not accepting additional applications for the Citizens Posse at this time.
