Sheriff's Volunteer Forces

Deputy Sheriff Reserve

The Deputy Sheriff Reserve classification operates in the same capacity as Deputy Sheriff, but they are volunteers. Deputy Sheriff Reserves are just a small portion of the over 500 individuals that make-up our volunteer force. Our other volunteers are assigned to units including, but not limited to: Search and Rescue, Radio Operations, and Mounted Patrol.

Many people get their first experience of law enforcement with our Sheriff’s Explorer Post. Explorers are young people who volunteer to learn and perform a variety of duties under the careful guidance of Sheriff Office staff, and many later become Correctional Officers and Deputy Sheriffs.
