Who We Are and What We Do!
The DeKalb County Sheriff's Reserve Unit is composed of citizen volunteers, who are sworn to serve as a professional auxiliary to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office. The Reserve Unit, is organized into two sub-units:
  • Certified Reserve Deputies within DeKalb County, who are trained and P.O.S.T. Law Enforcement certification standards, serve principally as partner officers in the Field and Court Division.
  •  Jail Reserve Officers, are trained specifically to assist in the operation of the county jail.

Reserve applicants must meet the same criteria for appointment as full-time employees, and must undergo the same rigorous selection process. Reserve officers are expected to contribute a minimum of 16 hours each month to the operations of the Sheriff's Department. Processing for new Reserve Officers occurs on an open basis; for further consideration, please submit an application by going to the "links section of our website" and download/print our application. The application must be filled out by hand and submitted either in person or by carrier (US Mail or the carrier of your choice).  Please allow 5-7 business days prior to submitting a web inquiry and include the type of application that was submitted i.e. reserves or auxiliary. We appreciate your interest in volunteering your time with the Reserve Unit and your future devotion to the Citizens of the County of DeKalb County.
