The Madera County Sheriff’s Department is actively recruiting Reserve Deputies. This is a great opportunity to serve your community and receive great training.
The Reserve Deputy Sheriff Program is a volunteer organization of individuals who provide the Department with additional law enforcement resources to better serve the citizens of Madera County. We currently have three levels of #MCSOReserves:
Level I: Once Field Training is completed you may have the ability to work patrol as a solo unit. This is a great opportunity for anyone that may be considering law enforcement as a career.
Level II: Once Field Training is completed you will work with another full time Deputy.
Level III: Once Field Training is completed you have the ability to work a fixed post. This is useful for help with disasters such as fires, traffic control, and community events.
A Reserve Deputy Sheriff has peace officer powers while on duty, in accordance with the laws of the State of California.
Since reserve deputies have the same powers of arrest as regular full-time deputies, they are required by law to meet the same hiring standards as full-time deputies.
The Reserve Program provides the opportunity for personal growth and education. Reserve Deputy Sheriff assignments may include field operations, various special programs, such as marijuana eradication, O.H.V., and boat patrol, events and other assignments at the direction of the Sheriff. Reserve Deputies are paid for some special events.
The California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) regulations require successful completion of a POST-certified Basic Course for every newly-appointed peace officer, including reserve deputies.
Reserve duty time is served on a flexible schedule to meet individual needs.
Reserve Deputy Sheriffs are required to work a minimum of 2 shifts per month on an annual basis.
Upon appointment, additional required training is provided at no cost.
The Madera County Sheriff’s Department provides a complete uniform for reserve deputies assigned to uniform services.
Once accepted, reserve deputies must also complete the Department’s Field Training Program provided by the Madera County Sheriff’s Department
