The Police Reserve Officer Program is comprised of community members, such as yourself, who wish to volunteer as a police officer. These officers supplement the full-time officers in a variety of duties throughout the department. They can patrol in vehicles, on foot patrols, or on bicycle patrol, secure the municipal court, participate in school programs, and participate in both the civilian and youth police academies. Most Reserve Officers work with officers, but others can qualify to patrol on their own. This program is ideal for individuals who have an established career and do not wish to make a full transition to full-time police officer. Reserve officers can enjoy the best of both worlds; maintain their chosen career and serving their city.
We offer 2 positions for volunteers:
