Benton County Sheriff's Mounted Posse

Benton County Sheriff's Mounted Posse Sheriff"s Mounted Posse The Benton County Sheriff's Mounted Posse is under the command of Sheriff Scott Jackson. We are a volunteer organization, whose purpose is to assist the Benton County Sheriff's Office.
(2)

We are a dedicated group that enjoy serving our community and promoting horsemanship to Benton County. Each Posse member volunteers their time and provides their own horse, tack, and some of their own equipment. The Posse was formed under Sheriff Clifford Lilly in 1946 to: * Assist the Sheriff's Office in community outreach activities * Assist local and state agencies in the preservation of law and order, search and rescue and emergency services. * Stimulate good horsemanship and promote strong fellowship. * Perpetuate the traditions, customs and pageantry of Oregon's early days. * Enhanced family and community activities. Our intention is to carry on and assist with the preservation of law and order, search and rescue and to carry on the traditions, pageantry and horsemanship of the "Old West". Today, these traditions are carried on by men and women who serve as special deputies under the Benton County Sheriff. Search and rescue is the foremost service provided to the Sheriff's Office. Posse members are trained and certified in search and rescue by the Oregon State Sheriff's Association and are on call 24 hours a day by the Sheriff's Office. Posse members who are involved in search and rescue spend a tremendous amount of time training and honing their skills throughout the year in order to keep their certification current and to learn the most up-to-date techniques and equipment to be used during a search.

We have been very busy this week helping rescue animals from level 3 area in Gates, OR with an amazing group of other volunteers. So far we have rescued 4 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 llamas, 2 alpacas, 1 pig, 4 dogs, 3 cats, 1 iguana and 1 gecko. We don't believe the large animals have ever been in a trailer before, so that was quite challenging. Couldn't get the draft-cross horse loaded the first day, so we were fortunate to bring a vet along the 2nd day to tranquilize him and finally got him loaded. Its a great feeling to be able to save some animals that have been impacted by the fires. Working on saving them all! 😢
