The Chickasha Police Department, through the appointment of the Chief of Police, has established a reserve officer program made up of a maximum of 15 individuals.
The objective of the reserve program is to provide sworn volunteer reserve officers who are trained to support the department during times of emergencies, disasters, and other occasions, which may require an increased complement of police personnel.
Reserve officers have the same powers, duties, and functions as set forth in state law or ordinance as regular full-time officers. Their primary duties are to assist the Patrol Division, though at times may assist other divisions during special needs of the department.
The program is directed by the Reserve Program Commander, who serves by appointment of the Chief of Police. The Commander may be a regular officer or retired regular officer of the department.
Training & Requirements
Reserve officers are required to complete mandatory certification training through CLEET. After completing the required certification process they must successfully complete the Field Training Program. The entire process can take up to a year.
Reserve officers are required to work a minimum of 10 hours a month. They are usually paired with a regular full-time officer, but may at the authorization of the Chief of Police be assigned as a solo unit.
Reserve officers are supplied a set of uniforms and equipment to perform their duties.
