The Moreno Valley Police Department is seeking individuals to become members of the Mounted Posse.

The Posse has a long tradition of assisting law enforcement. The Posse's activities include mounted training, assisting the Search and Rescue Team, high visibility patrol, and working special events.

Volunteers have always played a key role in helping the City of Moreno Valley. The Moreno Valley Police Department Mounted Posse remains ready to meet the ever changing needs of our growing community. By being involved in the community, the Moreno Valley Police Department Mounted Posse helps determine the character of life at their own doorstep. Members not only assist their community and their police department, but also help to preserve our quality of life.
