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:
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.
