POSSE - Sheriff's Office

Company: Weld County Government
Location: Greeley
Posted on: June 9, 2021

Job Description:


It is in the mutual interest of the Weld County Sheriff's Office and citizens of Weld County to have a volunteer group. Citizens who volunteer at the Weld County Sheriff's Office are instrumental in improving the quality of life in their community. Volunteers work as a team with the Sheriff's Office to provide a host of neighborhood services.

As a volunteer, you help the Sheriff's office decentralize law enforcement and take it out into the community where it is most needed. By giving your time to the Sheriff's office, you also ease the burden on deputies working in the field, allowing them to devote more time to fighting serious crime issues. By working together to identify problems and by forming partnerships based upon common goals and complementary strategies, law enforcement officials and community members can deal more effectively and efficiently with crime than they could by working separately.

If you meet the qualifications and are enthusiastic about volunteering your time, no other skills are required, but we do need specific skills in some situations. Training is offered to members of the Posse for some of the specific skills needed.
