The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is looking for people who are interested in becoming a volunteer Posse Member or a volunteer Boating Safety Officer. Both divisions have openings today and are looking for citizens that take pride in their communities and want to make a difference by volunteering.

Posse members will receive training in crime prevention, introduction to law, driver awareness, traffic control and radio communications. Posse members will provide assistance to deputies in non-law enforcement duties and services allowing our deputies to focus on crime prevention and enforcement of local and state laws.

Boating Safety Officers will attend training classes on boating safety, boating laws, boat operation and navigation and waterways patrol. Boating Safety Officers patrol our waterways during weekends and special events assisting our deputies in keeping our community safe in preventing water related accidents and injuries.

There is a qualification process for citizens interested in joining the Sheriff’s office, we are looking for people that have a positive attitude towards law enforcement, are at least 18 years of age, possess good moral character, have a valid driver’s license and able to pass a background check with no felony convictions.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is looking for you to volunteer, learn more by stopping by any district office in Kingman, Lake Havasu City or Fort Mohave or by calling 928-753-0753 and ask to talk to a volunteer coordinator to learn more about these programs.

Sheriff Schuster recognizes the tremendous value of volunteerism. “As a community it is vital that we work together for a common good. Our volunteers have always done an incredible job and I am excited to expand our existing programs,” Sheriff Schuster said.
