Sheriff Joe Arpaio or “America’s Toughest Sheriff” as he has been called, kicked off his volunteer posse holiday watch at an Arizona mall on Monday. He also said “terrorists with evil intent should be worried about armed citizens who will be ready to defend themselves and others.”

The annual event intending to protect shoppers at malls has special meaning this year given the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, and the Islamic State threats that have been made against Americans.

The kickoff this year took place at 4 p.m. Monday at Paradise Valley Mall in Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix is the largest city in Maricopa County, Arizona, and is the sixth largest city in the nation.

According to a statement by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department, Sheriff Arpaio said, “We have to understand and deal with these threats as an entire community in order to best safeguard the public. The first line of defense is law enforcement, and that includes the posse, which has proved itself again and again a most valuable and successful resource through the years.”

The Sheriff added, “The volunteer posse can’t do it alone, so with nearly 250,000 Arizonians carrying concealed weapons, terrorists with evil intent entering large gatherings, including shopping malls, should be worried about armed citizens who will be ready to defend themselves and others.”

… According to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) website, the Sheriff’s volunteer posse has over 3,000 members and is the nation’s largest posse.

The volunteer posse, started when Arpaio first took office in 1993, help law enforcement officials in search and rescue and other traditional police operations. They help round up deadbeat parents, fight prostitution, patrol malls during holidays, and investigate animal cruelty. Their services are “essentially free to taxpayers” states the sheriff on the MCSO website.

Thousands of Americans armed to the teeth and on the lookout for terrorist activity? Somehow, it seems like Maricopa County residents need not worry about terrorism this holiday season.
