POLICE RESERVE OFFICER CORPS
Beach Police Department is looking for a “few good folks” to serve the
community as Level-1 Reserve Police Officers.
Reserve Officers have the same authority as regular Police Officers –
they just do it part-time! This is an
exciting opportunity for members of our community to join a police department
and make a difference in the community.
Some Reserve Officers do so because it satisfies a personal ‘yen’ to
give something back. Others use the
opportunity to enter the law enforcement industry with aspirations of becoming
a professional, regular officer. In
either case, we hope you are interested in becoming a member of the Seal Beach
Police Department family!
Reserve Police Officers must contribute a minimum of 20 hours service per
month. All uniforms and safety equipment
are provided. Each Reserve Officer
receives $200 per month, intended for dry cleaning and uniform maintenance. Once on board, the Reserve Officer completes
a full field training program, teamed with a Field Training Officer and Mentor. After the field training is completed, the
Reserve Officer is free to work a variety of assignments pursuant a Watch
Commander’s discretion. The typical
Reserve Officer works within the Patrol Bureau, but may be assigned to other
special details as necessary.
