The Sun City Posse is splitting with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. The two groups have been hard to tell apart, but recently the posse has been shedding themselves of sheriff-branded uniforms and cars.
The volunteer group has decided to end it's partnership after nearly 50 years.
Posse officials say the decision has been a long time coming, mostly due to what some recruits feel are unnecessary MCSO requirements. The application to join the posse is 29 pages.
The posse hopes to regroup, rebrand and recruit in the future.
