SHERIFF’S POSSE


The “Dallas County Sheriff’s Posse”, DCSP, is established under Missouri Law as a functioning arm of the Dallas County Sheriff and his Office. MO State Statue 57.119 RSMO 1969 gives the authority to the Sheriff to create and directly manage the Posse. The statue further provides legal definition of the Posse members “the Posse members shall have limited Peace Officer authority when authorized by the Sheriff or his agents, as defined herein”.

Begun in Dallas County in 1970, it has been reorganized and is now more focused on support to the Sheriff and his office with significant dedication.

The DSCP has in place ongoing training requirements to equal the P.O.S.T. requirements and more, providing high quality voluntary assistance to the Sheriff’s Office at very short notice. The primary function of the new Posse is to provide volunteer professional grade services to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office such as search and rescue, emergency response (tornado or civil needs), security, eradication, check points, officer support, traffic control, assistance to other law enforcement agencies, and other duties as directed by the Sheriff.

Membership is limited to 30 active members, and 5 honorary members all, of which must be private citizens over the age of 21 who are residents of Dallas County and are willing to train and volunteer their time and equipment to assist, without compensation, to lessen the burden of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office. The Posse must conform to the procedures, policies and meet training standards adopted by the Sheriff’s Office and Posse leadership. All applicants apply in writing and must pass a background check and Posse board review then be voted on by the general membership.

General meetings are held once a month in the Dallas County Court House, the fourth Thursday of the month, and potential applicants or interested citizens may attend the open meetings.
The Dallas County Sheriff’s Posse serves the Sheriff and his office with extreme pride. We honor and highly respect those Deputies whose jobs it is to protect our county, its residents and assets. We therefore provide our assistance to lessen their untold burdens and work with them as partners for Dallas County.
We are “Trained to Serve”.
