The Reserve Division consists of nearly 200 volunteer members. The sheriff requires all reserve deputies be active and well trained. The Reserve Division has undergone extensive restructuring and a full-time deputy has been appointed to coordinate the program to ensure professional conduct. Each reserve deputy is required to work a minimum of 16 hours a month, attend a basic law enforcement academy, and attend annual refresher training.
The Reserve Division is now one of the most active divisions within the agency in providing law enforcement services to our citizens, donating millions of dollars worth of time to the citizens of Oklahoma County.
The Reserve Division has several specialty teams when include:
- Mounted Horse Patrol
- Dive Team
- All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Team
- Bicycle Team
- Event Team
Reserve Deputies also participate in all aspects of our agency operations including:
- Warrant and jail sweeps
