Reserve Academy

Swearing in at the Reserve AcademyUpon completion of the Reserve Academy, Reservists ride with Regular Deputies to gain actual field experience. Reserve deputies are required to perform at least 10 hours of volunteer service per month.

Reserve Deputies may perform most of the same duties as Regular Full-time Deputies, when working as a reserve deputy and are trained Law Enforcement Professionals. Levels of responsibility and activity are based on training and actual in the field experience.

The Men and Women of the Reserve Deputy program purchase their own equipment, volunteer their time and make a substantial commitment of time and energy to the service of their Community.

Reserve Deputies from our program have gone on to become fulltime police officers all over the State of Oregon. Some of our Reserves' interest are in returning something to their community and are not looking at law enforcement as a fulltime career. We welcome persons with both interests in our program.
