The Rockwall County Sheriff’s Posse is a nonprofit organization established in 1991 by members of the local Sheriff's Office. Today the organization continues to attract local citizens who enjoy participating in community service efforts and who have skills on horseback. Some of the common public services carried out by the Sheriff’s Posse include ensuring public safety when a wild animal or escaped livestock wanders onto a public roadway and providing parking lot security at local high schools during special events. The Sheriff’s Posse is also heavily involved in special community occasions such as the Christmas Parade, the Spring Parade, the Fourth of July Parade, and the annual Baseball Parade. The organization also regularly attends the Fort Worth Stock Show Parade and in January of 2000 was awarded first place at the event.
