Police Reserves

The South San Francisco Police Department Reserve Program is comprised of citizens who volunteer their time to assist career officers in many aspects of police work. South San Francisco Police Reserves are required to complete a training program which meets minimum training requirements as set forth by the California Police Officers Standards and Training (POST).

Generally, most police reserves become involved in the program because they are either interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement or are committed to serving the community in a law enforcement related capacity.

Amongst many responsibilities, reserve officers are required to be able to learn and understand large amounts of information and procedures related to law enforcement. They must be able to act in a professional manner and communicate effectively with co-workers and the general public.

South San Francisco Police Reserves are required to attend monthly meetings and work a minimum of 10 hours per month on a volunteer basis. In addition, some paid special event assignments are occasionally available. Anyone who is interested in the police reserve program is encouraged to contact the South San Francisco Police Department at (650) 877-8900 for more information.
