Reserve Police Officers Are Distinctive People

You may see them driving police vehicles, walking a beat, riding a bicycle, or even on horseback. They are dressed in full police uniform and equipped with all the usual safety equipment. At first glance you may think it’s just a regular police officer working a regular shift. But looks can be deceiving. It may actually be a Fresno Police Department Reserve Police Officer, and there is nothing regular about that.

Reserve Police Officers are an unique type of individual. They are generally not content to play a passive role in life. They are civic-minded and service oriented people who “get involved” for the betterment of their community. They are dedicated and motivated individuals who give of their own time and energy to help make Fresno a better place to live.

A successful Reserve program, made up of citizen volunteers from within the community, stands as a symbol of Fresno Police Department’s commitment to community partnerships and teamwork to improve the quality of life within our city. Reserve Police Officers are effective spokespersons in their neighborhoods, resulting in a better understanding and support of law enforcement. Conversely, their presence in the Department provides full-time officers with a deeper insight into all segments of the City’s population.

In many ways, Reserve Police Officers bridge the gap between the Department and the community and in doing so, live up to the creed that to be a Reserve Police Officer is “Twice the Citizen”
