Sheriff's Posse

The Sheriff's Posse is one of the oldest auxiliary units of the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office. Dating back to the 1940's, this unit is made up of volunteers on horseback. The Sheriff's Posse represents the Sheriff's Office in parades and search and rescue operations. Each member is required to provide and maintain his or her own horse, equipment and uniform. The Sheriff's Posse is divided into two teams: a Search and Rescue Team and a Ceremonial Team.

To volunteer with the Sheriff's Posse, please contact Sgt. Chad Nicholson at [email protected]
