   About the Coos County Mounted Sheriff's Posse

   The Coos County Mounted Sheriff's Posse is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that works with the Sheriff’s office to serve the people of Coos
   County. The Posse assists the Sheriff’s office in the preservation of law and order, promotes good horsemanship, and fosters fellowship and
   sportsmanship. Posse members assist the Sheriff’s office with community events and emergency operations, enjoy monthly trail rides, compete in
   rodeo-style games, do search and rescue, and enjoy being with other posse members. The posse gives back to the community with local high
   school scholarships, supports local 4-H groups, and provides Christmas baskets for needy families. 


   CCMSP is a member of the Oregon Association of Mounted Posses and participates in OAMP events and competitions, including pistol shooting,
   Shodeo, and trail rides.
   CCMSP was formed and chartered in September 1956. The posse has an arena and building in Hauser on land donated by George Riley in 1969.
