CLEARFIELD, Pa. (AP) - A sheriff in a western Pennsylvania county is looking for volunteers to join his posse.

Sheriff Wes Thurston issued a news release Wednesday announcing the first Volunteer Clearfield County Sheriff’s Posse.

Members will help the sheriff and his deputies respond to natural disasters, search for missing children or endangered people, gather information or handle other nonemergency tasks.

The sheriff recommends that volunteers carry a firearm, though he says that’s not necessary.

The largely rural county is seated in Clearfield, about 110 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
