The St. Joseph County Sheriff's Posse is a "Not For Profit" (501c3) organization, commissioned by the Sheriff, as mounted patrol police officers. The Posse serves vital needs in our community by providing search and rescue, crowd control as well as emergency and tactical capabilities. The Posse also supports groups like Reins of Life (therapeutic horseback riding for the mentally and physically challenged), Camp Milhouse, Hope Rescue Mission, St. Joseph County 4-H Horse & Pony Club's Team Tournament, the Homeless Center and other worthy causes.

The St. Joseph County Sheriff's Posse is made up of up to 24 reserve officers and 1 full-time police officer. Each officer must supply their own horse, tack, boarding, feed, truck and trailer. Each member must complete the mounted law enforcement course sponsored by the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. Training consists of crowd control and police tactics, formation riding, interpersonal communication skills, search & rescue techniques and traffic control and enforcement.

The Sheriff's Posse is activated by special order to support the activities of other Sheriff department units, city police departments and the University of Notre Dame police department during community events, athletic events and police operations to provide crowd control and patrol. They also provide search and rescue operations covering large geographical areas. Each year, the Sheriff's Posse honors numerous requests from the community to represent the Police Department during special activities to build a partnership between the police and the community.
