A Community Posse Officer is an auxiliary, uniformed, unarmed volunteer who is trained in crime prevention and works directly under the supervision of the Community Posse Coordinator. All Community Posse Officers are responsible for the accomplishment of the Community Affairs Division's mission as it pertains to crime prevention.
The Community Posse Volunteers:
- Conduct the Neighborhood Watch Program in accordance with the prescribed lesson outline established by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
- Conduct other crime prevention programs with the approval of the Community Posse Coordinator.
In the President's 2002 State of the Union Address, President Bush challenged Americans to become involved in local homeland security efforts. Volunteering and becoming a Community Posse Officer is an excellent way to help the efforts of the Neighborhood Watch and other Crime Prevention Programs.
