Service as a reserve officer will offer you training, challenge, excitement, teamwork, opportunities for special assignments, and significant personal rewards.
You will become a member of a very special organization that is being built upon honor, tradition, service, courage and commitment.
After the successful completion of a certified reserve academy and extensive field training, reserve officers work in solo-capacities in marked police vehicles, as independent and full-authority police officers. Our reserve officers wear the same uniform as career officers, and they drive the same police vehicles. They seamlessly respond to the same radio calls for service, and they perform the same police job duties as career officers.
Reserve officers may continue in uniform patrol, or they may be assigned to specialty units. Our reserve officers are highly regarded by our career officers, and they are fully integrated in all aspects of the police department's operations.
Reserve officers are required to work a minimum of 24hrs a month, for a total of 288 hours each year. Because of the exciting and rewarding nature of police work, many of our reserve officers work forty to sixty hours each month, and they easily exceed the annual minimum service requirement.
THE WMPD ONLY ACCEPTS RESERVE APPLICATIONS FROM QUALIFIED APPLICANTS WHO HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED AN INDIANA LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING BOARD, CERTIFIED RESERVE OR FULL BASIC ACADEMY.
40HR PRE-BASIC TRAINING ALONE, DOES NOT QUALIFY.
