The Police Reserve Officer Program is comprised of community members who wish to help the community in the area of public safety. The reserve officers supplement the police department by doing a variety of duties. Duties include, but are not limited to security, event supervision, traffic control, police ride-along, disaster response, and communications. This program is ideal for individuals who have an established career but wish to make their community a safer place. Reserve Officers enjoy the best of both worlds, maintain their chosen career and help police in the city. Police Reserve Officers serve a 6 Month probationary period where they are given instruction on traffic control, radio procedures, self defense, firearms training, first aid, use of force, and department procedures.
