The Scott County Sheriff Posse



     The Scott County Sheriff Posse was formed by Mr. Altus Julian in 1963, making it one of the oldest Posses in the state of Indiana. The Posse started with eight members and they have participated in many large parades, including the Pegasus Parade in Louisville, Ky and the Indiana State Fair Parade.     

The Posse has changed its by-laws over the years allowing women to become members.

Today the posse is an important part of the Sheriff’s emergency response.  Training includes: 40 hour pre basic Law-enforcement course, firearms training, as well as, combatives, First aid and Search rescue training.  The Posse has been called out on numerous occasions for search and rescue missions, and most recently were called out in the recovery effort during the March 2 tornadoes.
