Arizona Sheriff Creates “Citizens Posse”, Allows Residents to Be Deputized


Watch the news recently and you may have noticed there’s been a breakdown of law and order in this country.

“Protesters” feel free to burn down government buildings, tear down statues, and terrorize businesses.

And who’s choosing to support these violent mobs?


Well Arizona’s Pinal County Sheriff, Mark Lamb, is fighting back against these radicals.

He’s created a Citizen’s Posse so that residents can be deputized and assist in maintaining peace.

Fox News reports on the story:

In an Arizona county, criminals will soon face a new order of the law: “Citizens Posse.”

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office will allow residents to be deputized to help law enforcement keep the peace.

“As Sheriff of Pinal County, I am given the authority to deputize civilians to assist in law enforcement,” Sheriff Mark Lamb said. “While we hope such an action is never required, we want to make sure those willing to step into the role are trained and ready.”

The office said the program is open to all residents.

After residents have a minimal background check and sign a waiver, they will learn the basics of constitutional law, search and seizure, basic firearm safety, home safety, and the use of force before being deputized.

Thankfully we have a President and sheriffs like Lamb willing to protect law-abiding citizens from the unhinged BLM and Antifa members.

Watch the sheriff’s announcement right here:

Here's what's trending on Twitter over the sheriff's new program:

Lamb isn't the only sheriff willing to take the initiative to deputize residents in order to maintain law and order.

Last month, a Florida sheriff announced he would make deputies of legal gun owners to aid his department.

USA Today previously reported on that story:

Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels, no stranger to making viral videos appealing to tough-on-crime politics, released a video Tuesday that said he will make “special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county” if he feels the county is overwhelmed by protesters.

The three-minute video shows Daniels standing in front of 18 deputies as he derides civil rights protesters as godless disruptors and tells them to stay out of Clay County, a suburb of Jacksonville.

"If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility," he said.

"That’s what we’re sworn to do. That’s what we’re going to do. You’ve been warned."
