The Reserve Deputy Program is a group of upstanding citizens who volunteer their time to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office. The Reserve Deputies are utilized to provide two-person patrol units and other services and activities as required. Some of the extra activities that Reserve Deputies perform are:
- Child Fingerprinting
- Community Awareness and Safety
- Security for various events, such as the Arkansas State Fair and the Special Olympics
- Reserve Deputies are also on an “on call” basis to respond to aid in the event of a natural disaster.
Recruitment and selection for the Reserve Deputy Program is coordinated through the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office Enforcement Training and Special Services Division. Individuals selected must undergo a vigorous background investigation and successfully complete the certification guidelines as outlined by the State of Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training. Individuals interested in applying for the Reserve Deputy Program are encouraged to contact the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office Enforcement Training/Special Services Division at 501-340-6944 or at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
