They're forming a Posse.

Sounds like a little Aluminum Christmas Trees here too: This was actually a pretty standard practice in a lot of places in the US up until the early 1900's- a given town would generally just have a Sheriff and maybe one or two permanent deputies if it was a very large town; the rest of the force consisted of "Who's sober and probably won't shoot themselves in the foot?". A number of states still technically allow it.
