The Sheriff's Department utilizes a Reserve Deputy Program to help carry out the mission of the Department. Without their valuable assistance, our ability to serve the citizens would be greatly limited.
Reserve Deputies volunteer their time, with no compensation and at no cost to the citizens.
The Reserve Deputy Program does their own fundraising to help pay for the equipment needed to perform their duties. Any equipment that isn't covered by donations is paid for by the Reserve Deputies themselves.
While on duty, they have the same authority as full-time deputies. They provide valuable services, like performing law enforcement duties at special events, such as school ball games, rodeos, parades, etc; they patrol the county; they answer calls for service; they serve civil papers; and they perform any other law enforcement duty that is needed.
Examination required for certification: Reserve peace officers, within six (6) months of their commission or appointment as a reserve officer, must satisfactorily complete a minimum 240-hour CLEET approved certification course and satisfactorily complete all practicum work and pass all written examinations required for certification.
In order to attend CLEET approved certification training, reserve officers must meet, as a minimum, the following conditions:
For cities or counties having a total population of less than two hundred thousand (200,000) persons, a reserve officer shall serve not more than one hundred ten (110) hours per calendar month.
