Roles & Responsibilities

The Reserve Program is the longest operating volunteer program in the Sheriff's Department. The Sheriff’s Reserve Program consists of ten reserve officers. The Reserves’ responsibilities include assignment to detachment offices and the patrol division. Pierce County reserve deputies are trained and commissioned law enforcement officers. The commission a reserve deputy holds allows him/her to enforce all laws during the time that officer is on duty. Reserves are a vital resource in the department and the community, and relieve the regular officers of many time-consuming details such as transporting prisoners. Response time to calls for service is improved and time devoted to investigations can increase. The reserves primary mission is to provide support to deputy sheriffs and providing traffic control at accident or crime scenes.
