ACSO Recruiting Reserve Deputies
They say two cops in a car are better than one.
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office is recruiting for "reserve-1" deputies- men and women in the community to volunteer their time and work along side full-time sheriff's deputies.
Reserve deputies receive most of the training as full-time deputies, and carry all the same equipment, riding along with deputies on patrol.
"If individuals have had an interest in law enforcement, throughout their life, and this is something they've always wanted to do, but never had the opportunity to do, this is the chance to do it--- this is something we've never done at this agency before, it's been done around the state, but this would be their opportunity to get their training done in the evenings, in a convenient format, without disrupting their full time employment," said Stephen Miller, Captain of the Reserve Division.
Reserve deputies are required to commit 36 hours of their time per calendar quarter.
To get to that point takes a total of 330 hours of training, which takes eight to ten months to complete.
Recruiting closes at the end of June, when all applicants who've applied online will be notified, and start the formal application process.
