The two Posses are MCSO Sheriff’s Posse of Sun City West   &   Sun City West Posse  The in house training should show the same classes and same classroom hours for both Posses. The difference is the Sheriff’s Posse is required to complete the MCSO Mandatory Bias Training (4th & 14th Amendments + gender Bias. Two 10hr classes dates and times to be determined by MCSO will be done at MCSO Training Center. They must also complete On Line training. The hours would depend on their computer skills and can be taken at home once they receive notification of their acceptance. I would need to have Fran McElroy let you know about the Dispatch portion, There have been many changes to communication classes for just Dispatch training. The link for the Sheriff’s Posse should be to their website MCSOPOSSE.org. The Join Us button explains the application process.
