Monty Hevern of Alexandria was recently honored for serving the Douglas County Sheriff’s Posse for more than 39 years.
Besides being a charter member since the posse’s inception in 1975, he was also a sergeant leader and a quartermaster.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office presented Hevern with a plaque thanking him for his service and support for the community, and wished him well in his retirement from the posse.
The posse is comprised of volunteers who assist the sheriff’s office in a variety of ways, from helping with traffic and parking at large public events to securing crime and fire scenes.
Various groups in the community request the posse’s assistance throughout the year. Request forms can be obtained at the sheriff’s office.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Posse is always looking for new members. To join, you must be 18 years old, have a current physical and pay a $5 application fee. Forms are available at the sheriff’s office.
