Years ago i worked as a deputy sheriff in an agency with reserves.  Generally the experience was quite positive working with reserves, and several of our reserves went on to become FT officers with our and other agencies.  the only intersting thing wa that the reserves had a rank structure , but the highest ranking reserve was still considered below any FT deputy.  While neither the reserve nor I had any problem with it, one citizen though  an unranked deputy souldn't be telling a reserve lieutenant what to do, doubt if they knew the difference between reserves and FTers.

SO2131........I started out part-time in the courthouse and would work my reserve time out on the road on my time off. I worked well over 500 hours on the road before I was offered a FT spot. Yes I was in uniform, badged, armed, etc the entire time. My suggestion for you is this, IF you plan on going full time in the near future with your agency it is in your best interest to be seen and HEARD as much as possible.......in a competent way. That means don't get out there and act a fool because you are hot and bothered to become the next hero. Yes as a reserve WORK, don't just carry a badge, anyone can do that. Be calm cool and collected and know the law. Most of all be patient. Good things come to those who wait. At first you may be doing transport "A" to BFE and transport "B" to the other BFE and serving a ton of papers whether they are subpoenas, civil papers, small time warrants, whatever. Do the grunt work because that is your job, to prove that you can. As a Deputy Sheriff be mindful of who we ultimately work for, and make him/her shine through your actions. Good luck.


You can't cure stupid.

I feel the same about Reserve Deputies as I do about Reserve Officers. Incidentally, I posted that reply in your Officer thread (lol).

"Officer" would indicate employment with a Police Agency, whereas "Deputy" would indicate employment with a County Sheriff's Department/Office.

My post from your other thread :)



I personally have no issue with Reserve Officers. As long as they're properly trained (as most are). The reserve officers on my Department are all Retired Officers from the Department. Our S.O. uses them as well, both retired and non-retired.



Maybe a mod can move this to allow the OP to view responses :)

 I am currently a reserve deputy. It is one of the best jobs that I have ever done. When I became a reserve with my department it has a pre-approved Academy Training schedule. Everything that I went through is about the same training the full time deputies go through. But the reserve training usually last a whole lot longer, about 4 months longer. But when finished you take an Academy test at the Academy. My opinion is that you stay with it the program and give it your everything. It will test your physical and mental abilities at times. You will have to learn laws, regulations and other law enforcement related training. Always be studying your books they give you. 


When and if you pass and get on board get to know the department by going out with different people and in different parts of your county/city. You learn more that way. Do not stay with just one person. I had a friend that did that and all he did was ride with the same person and in the same area for about 2 years. It caught to the point the deputy told him to explore other areas and different people. The reserve thought that whatever happened in one area probably happens in other areas. That reserve left the department.I do not know what your department allows as far as what you are allowed to do and who you can ride with. But in my department I am free to go wherever and with whoever. I suggest you really explore the department and its officers. Also do not come across as a jerk, a tattle tell, and someone that will not have there partners back. That will end your career fast! Work hard and be observent.


You wouldn't go in there for a million bucks...A Cop does it for less...A Reserve does it for free....
