Sun City West is one of the safest communities in Arizona and the United States. The ability to make this claim comes in part from the dedicated volunteers who belong to an organization called; the Sheriff’s Posse of Sun City West (Posse).
It is important to know that the Posse works closely with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. The Posse is the eyes and the ears that provide the day to day patrolling coverage and theft deterrent that comes from having our patrol cars on the street virtually 24 hours per day. That means a much safer community since the Posse is your first line of security as part of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. In fact, beyond patrols, there are many other free services your Posse offers you.
