Starting this Friday, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Posse will kick off its annual holiday-season presence on horseback patrol in the Clackamas Town Center parking lot.

This will be the 16th year the Posse has worked with the Town Center to welcome shoppers and provide a striking holiday presence.

The Posse will patrol the Town Center's parking lots from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting Friday, Nov. 29 -- and will be there every weekend until Sunday December 22nd.

"We're excited to welcome back the Sheriff's Posse," said Jessica Curtis, Town Center Marketing Manager. "It's a favorite holiday tradition for our customers and retailers."

The Posse encourages the public to come meet our four-legged partners during this holiday season. The Posse will stage their trucks and trailers in the south lot of the Town Center, just south of Sears.

The Sheriff's Office reminds shoppers to lock their car doors and keep valuables stowed away and out of sight while away from their vehicles.

Media inquiries should be directed to Jessica Curtis at Clackamas Town Center.


The Sheriff's Posse -- founded in 1939 by Clackamas County citizens -- is an all-volunteer organization that serves the Sheriff's Office and the county in several ways:

  • The Posse perpetuates interest in Western horsemanship, as well as customs and traditions from the early days of the State of Oregon.
  • The Posse participates in search-and-rescue missions as requested.
  • The Posse provides mounted patrols as needed, as well as support for special events.
  • The Posse also participates in several charitable causes, and even offers its own scholarship.
