MCSO looking for Volunteer Posse replacements

KINGMAN - Mohave County Sheriff Jim McCabe is looking for a few folks to be members of his office's Volunteer Posse.

Two longtime volunteers, Tom Henderson and Roger Wolford, recently retired. Henderson in his time on the posse worked more than 8,500 hours and Wolford served more than 15 years on the posse and as a member of the sheriff's volunteer Search and Rescue unit.

The two men were presented with certificates of appreciation last week. A third member, Wes Carver, was acknowledged after marking 3,000 volunteer hours.

"Their dedication and commitment are truly admirable," said Chief Deputy Rodney Head. "Tom and Roger are already missed in our posse unit."

There are many areas in the sheriff's office where volunteers are utilized, including search and rescue, boating safety, community policing and crime prevention, animal control, media relations, data entry, dispatch operations, corrections and prisoner transportation, record keeping and research, radio communications, and neighborhood safety patrols, spokeswoman Trish Carter said.

Carter invited anyone interested in joining the posse to stop by the sheriff's office at 600 W. Beale St. and pick up an application. Contact Dseputy Troy Schmotzer at (928) 753-0756 for more information. Volunteer posse spots also are open at the substations in Mohave Valley and Lake Havasu City.
