What We Do

Polk County Mounted Posse on Horses and an ATVThroughout the year the Polk County Mounted Posse (PCSMP) is involved with numerous community events, in addition to the call outs we receive from the Sheriff's Office for missing persons. These activities include:

  • Search and rescue/recovery of missing persons
    • The PCSMP is a valuable resource for Search and Rescue operations. Horses are able to cover more ground and gain access to areas not easily done so by searchers on foot.
  • Evidence Recovery
  • Crime Scene Security
