If you live in Arizona and want to be a member of this new posse, I have included some information below so you can contact this sheriff office and join. I have no idea if they will take folks from out of state, or even out of country, and you will have to ask them.

     The key part to this that I really like, is the fact that it is armed and legally backed up by this department.  I think this is a much needed move given the current state of things along the border. Check it out and if anyone has anything else to add, feel free to do so in the comments section. –Matt
