Date:_______________

I, ________________________________, being 18 years of age or older, do hereby

request permission from the Broward Sheriff's Office (hereinafter referred to as "BSO") to

participate in the BSO Civilian Mounted Posse, subject to the following conditions:

Initial all paragraphs:

If permission is granted, I agree to obey all instructions, orders, or commands given to

me by any BSO employee during the period of my participation. I understand that such

instructions, orders, and commands are for my safety and protection.

I am fully aware of and appreciate the fact that, as a participant in the Civilian

Mounted Posse, I may experience or encounter many of the dangers associated with law

enforcement work including, but not limited to, vehicle accidents and altercations with

dangerous individuals. I fully realize and appreciate the fact that such dangers may result in

physical harm, injury, or death to myself. I knowingly, willingly and voluntarily accept any and

all risks associated with such dangers. In assuming such risks, I agree not to bring a lawsuit or

cause of action against BSO, the Sheriff of Broward County, his directors, officers, deputies,

employees, agents, representatives, volunteers and/or servants for any physical harm, injury

or death to myself, as a result of my participation in the Civilian Mounted Posse even if

attributed to the negligence, actions or inactions of BSO, the Sheriff of Broward County, his

directors, officers, deputies, employees, agents, representatives, volunteers or servants.

I understand that this Hold Harmless/Indemnification Agreement includes any and all

claims based on the negligence, actions or inactions of BSO, the Sheriff of Broward County,

his directors, officers, deputies, employees, agents, representatives, volunteers or servants

and covers bodily injury and property damage, whether suffered by me or another person.

I agree to indemnify from any liability and save harmless BSO, the Sheriff of Broward

County, his directors, officers, deputies, employees, agents, representatives, volunteers and

servants against liability arising from any claim, cause of action, or lawsuit brought against the

BSO, the Sheriff of Broward County, his directors, officers, deputies, employees, agents,

representatives, volunteers or servants as a result of my participation in the Civilian Mounted

Posse, even if attributed to the negligence, actions or inactions of BSO, the Sheriff of Broward

County, his directors, officers, deputies, employees, agents, representatives, volunteers or

servants.

In consideration of my acceptance into the Civilian Mounted Posse, I, the

undersigned, intending to be legally bound hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors, and

administrators, waive and release any and all rights and claims for losses and damages I may

1


have against BSO, the Sheriff of Broward County, his directors, officers, deputies, employees,

agents, representatives, volunteers and/or servants from liability arising from my participation

in the Civilian Mounted Posse even if attributed to the negligence, actions or inactions of BSO,

the Sheriff of Broward County, his directors, officers, deputies, employees, agents,

representatives, volunteers or servants.

_____ I further understand and agree that BSO is an “equine activity sponsor”, and that as

such BSO shall not be liable for injury or death to myself resulting from the inherent risks of

equine activities and that neither myself nor any of my representatives, heirs, or assigns, shall

have any claim against BSO, the Sheriff of Broward County, his directors, officers, deputies,

employees, agents, representatives, volunteers and/or servants, for injury, loss, damage, or

death of myself resulting from any of the inherent risks of equine activities, notwithstanding the

exceptions to liability described in Florida Statutes §773.03, which I hereby knowingly and

voluntarily waive and disclaim.

I further agree that I am to act only as an observer and will not become involved in any

way as an active participant in any law enforcement activity. It is further agreed that as an

observer, I will not carry a firearm, knife or other weapon.

I acknowledge that the above stated provisions are applicable, without exception, to all

participants including those that are law enforcement officers.
