The Bossier Sheriff's Posse is an invaluable asset in helping your deputies to serve and protect the people of Bossier Parish. Although Posse members perform no direct enforcement duties, they provide additional eyes and ears, and their visibility in marked patrol units helps prevent crime.
The 270 posse volunteers are men over 50, many retired military, who are in uniform and ride in patrol units that are indistinguishable from the sworn deputies' patrol units. Posse men are trained in CPR, reporting accidents, crime scene preservation, home vacation checks and directing traffic at accident scenes.
These volunteers and their wives in the Posse Auxiliary operate the food bank, Operation Blessing. They also telephone elderly residents to check on their welfare in the Sheriff's Telephone Reassurance Program. Many of the Auxiliary members volunteer their time at Willis Knighton hospital.
