Are you interested in law enforcement? Did you know you can have a full-time career and still be a full-authority police officer? The Phoenix Police Department Reserve Division consists of volunteers, many with full-time or part-time careers who donate their time as state certified police officers.
As a reserve officer, you choose the hours you work each month, while meeting the 240 hour yearly requirement. Begin your service on patrol, in full uniform and driving a marked patrol vehicle. There you will respond to emergency calls for service. Reserve officers complete the same training as career (full-time) officers. This type of program is not a ride along. When you request a call for service, you are the primary officer. Put your education, skills, knowledge and experience to work assisting the Phoenix community. From there, you can move to a speciality unit, become a detective or work in other vital capacities.
To be a reserve officer requires a commitment of time and dedication. You will need to pass the applicant process and the physical conditioning tests. From there you attend the Police Academy. After graduation you begin field training with an experienced, career officer. Once you are solo-qualified, you can volunteer as often as you choose.
Reserve officers are parents, retired officers, doctors, attorneys and factory workers. While the requirements are challenging to be an officer, your professional experience becomes an asset as soon as training starts at the academy and continues the entire time you are on duty.
If this describes you and you have the drive and spirit to support this great, Phoenix community, contact the recruitment team for more information. You can reach them by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
