POSSE FACT

POSSE FACT:  In 2023, Posse volunteers worked 61,624 total hours. Of this total number of hours, 26,504 were worked in Patrol – conducting the duty necessary to be the “eyes and ears of Sun City.”

Public Statement April 2024

On behalf of the Sun City Posse, I would like to reiterate some important facts to our community. The actions of the Sun City Posse are governed by a Board of Governors and overseen by the Commander, all of whom are elected by the Posse membership. As a 501(c)3 community service organization, actions are guided by registered By-Laws which can only be changed by a membership vote; Policies guide the day-to-day operations and changes to policies must be approved by the Board of Governors.

The Posse operates on a 5-year plan that is approved by the Board and is updated and expanded each year, and an annual budget set and approved by the Board. Expenditures within and in addition to that plan must be approved by the Board.  As required of an Organization such as the Posse, the financial records are available for public inspection upon request.  Because the Posse survives entirely on the donations from the community, the Board and the Treasurer provide guarded oversight and make decisions based only on need to keep the facility and grounds in good repair, create a safe and pleasant work environment for our volunteers, and keep our patrol vehicles street-worthy and safe. 

Leadership of the Posse comes and goes, but in the history of the Sun City Posse the integrity of this 50-year-old institution has not been successfully challenged, either when at its peak of over 200 members to approximately 130 volunteers today. Dedicated volunteers, all of whom live in Sun City, work nearly every day to ensure the community has services built on the premise to provide a safer place for all residents. The Sun City Posse volunteers give of their valuable time and take nothing away except the satisfaction of knowing that Sun City is one of the best places to call home – not for just a few, but for everyone.
