Welcome to the Commander's Corner for March 2016
Sun Lakes Residents,
On January 25th of this year Sheriff Penzone surprised the entire Posse program membership by temporarily suspending the enforcement operations of the Posse program.
The Sun Lakes Posse has continued to provide our medical equipment service program during this suspension. We anticipate our members being cleared by the Sheriff’s Department under the new standards and may resume our patrol functions under the MCSO Posse program by the end of March. In addition to this, expect your Sun Lakes Posse to expand our presence in the neighborhood via the internet and social media platforms like “Next Door” immediately.
In order to prevent this lack of patrol presence in the future, the Sun Lakes Posse is expanding the volunteer Law Enforcement presence with a new community partnership. In addition to supporting the MCSO Posse program we are also committing to supporting the Arizona Rangers program moving forward. Please visit their website at www.azrangers.us to see more about the rich history of this volunteer uniformed Law Enforcement auxiliary organization that reports to the Governor of Arizona.
While the two (2) programs are not connected at all in the command structure or Law Enforcement affiliations, they share many similarities in their volunteer functions, training and certification standards. All Arizona Rangers are in uniform, armed and trained to assist Law Enforcement agencies when called upon.
By supporting the Arizona Rangers presence and patrols in Sun Lakes, the Sun Lakes Posse will be able to provide the use of our facility and assets to provide a greater presence than ever before seen in our community. Look for these programs to operate separately and simultaneously in the coming months throughout our community.
We are committed to serving the community we live in and call home and greatly appreciate your continued financial support of our expanding operations.
Craig R. Lloyd
