General Information

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office holds recruiting meetings for the volunteer Posse program once a month. These volunteer, non-compensated positions are made up of people from all walks of life that want to do law enforcement work as a way to give back to the community.

In order to join the Posse program, a person must be at least 18 years of age, a U.S. citizen, have a valid Arizona driver's license and be in good mental and physical condition. A person cannot have any criminal history or record of improper personal conduct - which will be discovered during the background check - that may affect their suitability for law enforcement work.

Applicants must complete and have notarized a written application to start the process. The monthly recruiting meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month, except December, and begin at 06:30pm at the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Training Center. The Training Center is located at 2627 South 35th Avenue, just North of the intersection of 35th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road.

During the monthly recruitment meeting, interested recruits will be briefed on the Posse program, what to expect throughout the hiring process, and training. The opportunity will be provided to complete or review the written application.

To expedite the recruitment process, interested recruits can download and complete a Posse Recruitment Application. Completed applications must be notarized and brought to the monthly meeting for validation and processing. Do not print the application double- sided. Only single-sided applications will be accepted.
