Reserve officers

The Palmetto Police Department's Reserve Unit is comprised of Officers who have completed all training and educational requirements of a full time Police Officer and also maintain their certification along side full time Officers in all mandatory training fields. Many of our Reserve Officers have resigned or retired from the Police Department after a partial or full career in law enforcement here or at other agencies. 

Reserve Officers are volunteers and assist with staffing and security at local events as well as completing at least eight hours a month working on-duty, responding to calls for service. For further information on the Reserve Unit or how to become a Reserve Officer, please contact the Reserve Unit Coordinator listed below.
