"Posse members will help the sheriff and his deputies respond to natural disasters, search for missing children or other endangered people, as well as in gathering information and performing other non-emergency tasks."


Sounds like a good idea.

What else are communities going to do without full-time staff? Fire departments do the same thing. They use lots of volunteers.
That is the way of our commonwealth. The state and local governments cut jobs and raise taxes. Communities have to cover the loss somehow.
