Sheriff’s Reserve Program
The Sheriff’s Reserve Program supports the Patrol Unit, and is an important element of the Department.
It is a non-profit organization comprised of men and women who are interested in serving their community by
devoting time to law enforcement. Reserve Deputies assist with patrol functions, corrections, marine enforcement,
crime scene security, search and rescue operations, marijuana eradication, and special events. Reserves are
compensated for their time.
Anyone interested in applying for the program must have minimally completed a P.O.S.T. accredited 832 P.C. course, and the Level III and Level II modular law enforcement academies. These courses are offered at most community colleges, including Yuba Community College.
The selection process consists of a review of the application to ensure the applicant meets the minimum qualifications, an interview panel, a comprehensive background investigation, a physical examination and a psychological evaluation.
Anyone interested in applying for the Reserve Program may contact the Program Liaison, Lieutenant Shaun Smith, at 749-7734. Applications are also available at the Sheriff’s Department’s main office located at 215 5th Street, Marysville, CA 95901.
