Serving Pasco County
Pasco Sheriff's Mounted Posse (PSMP) is a 501(c) (3) under the Pasco Sheriff's Office incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida as Pasco Sheriff's Charities, Inc. and provides mounted assistance to the Pasco Sheriff's Office for Search & Rescue Operations and a wide range of special events. The Pasco Sheriff's Office has three equestrian units. The Pasco Sheriff's Office Mounted Unit is comprised of sworn deputies and the Pasco Sheriff's Mounted Posse is comprised of civilian volunteers and in April of 2015 a Junior Posse was formed, comprised of youth between 14 - 17. All units own their mounts. All the members of the Posse donate their time to provide services that benefit our community. Posse members, both horse and rider, participate in challenging drills and training exercises that increase rider and mount partnership and prepare the team to safely participate in public functions.
