Our Standards are high...for good reason!

Reserve Officers dedicate a minimum of two shifts per month.  One of the those shifts is scheduled as a group to prevent overlap coverage, while the other is flexible and based totally upon your schedule.  We expect about a minimum of 25 hours per month from our Reserve Officers.  In addition to patrol duties, Reserves also serve on special assignments including dispatch, corrections, and community service teams. 

But it will take more...
Becoming a Reserve Police Officer takes a significant investment of your time.  With the ongoing testing and evaluation process, you'll need to spend more time than your scheduled shifts reviewing state laws, city municipal codes, policies and procedures, and becoming very familiar with the city. 

Candidate Requirements:
You must have U.S. Citizenship.
Be 21 years of age by the completion of the academy.
Have a high school diploma or equivalent.
Possess a valid U.S. driver's license at the time of application and be able to obtain a Washington State driver's license by the time of appointment.
Must not have any Domestic Violence or Felony Convictions.

Applicants must pass a physical agility test, a written exam, an group oral interview, a background examination, a psychological evaluation, a polygraph examination and a medical examination.
