Become a Reserve Deputy with the Clark County Sheriff's Office! Fight crime, keep our roads safe, and provide vital law enforcement to the citizens of Clark County!

The Sheriff will train and equip you. As an unpaid volunteer, you will be uniformed, armed, and equipped in exactly the same manner as a full-time deputy. According to your schedule and interests, you may choose to patrol day or night, responding to emergencies, protecting crime scenes, enforcing traffic laws, directing traffic at large community events, and many other exciting and rewarding missions.

We are always recruiting! For more details on the Reserve program, see the Sheriff's Office website at https://www.clark.wa.gov/sheriff/reserve-unit

This is one of the most challenging volunteer opportunities in Clark County. Reserve Deputies must meet the same tough Washington state standards as full-time law enforcement officers. If you think you have what it takes, please email SheriffRecruitment@clark.wa.gov
