The Jackson Police Department and the Jackson County Office of the Sheriff are looking for community members interested in becoming reserve officers and reserve deputies. Reserves are volunteers that assist the Jackson Police Department and the Jackson County Office of the Sheriff serving the citizens of Jackson. Reserves may assist regular sworn officers on patrol or assist with special community events such as parades and fireworks. Candidates will receive extensive training including investigations, traffic, defensive tactics, firearms, and narcotics.
Candidates must be eligible to obtain a Concealed Pistol License. Applications are available at the Jackson Police Department, Jackson County Office of the Sheriff, or the City of Jackson website and must be submitted by Friday, November 22, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Although this is a joint academy, candidates will be selected and volunteer with only one department. The academy will start in February 2020 and will meet for 14 weeks on Mondays and Wednesdays, along with some Saturdays.
