Sheriff Arpaio's posse arrives for school duty

PHOENIX -- Some students in the north Valley arrived at school Wednesday to a little more security.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's volunteer posse members were patrolling the school grounds around Anthem School in the Deer Valley Unified School District.

"They're going to be very present in our schools in Anthem," said Bill Gahn, director of operations for the school district. "We've worked very closely with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department and they just said they're going to be there to help out."

The volunteers will not be on campus. Rather, they'll be in marked vehicles driving around schools, ready to respond if necessary.

"Through these anxious times that we have right now in our country we are doing everything we can to makes sure we try to lower the anxiety of our parents and our staff and I certainly feel that the posse and the Sheriff's Department can help us do that," Gahn said.

Arpaio will hold a news conference at Anthem School, which serves pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, Wednesday afternoon, to lay out more details of the school posse program.

Below is a list of all of the schools.
