Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The members of the CCSO Reserve Unit are fully commissioned Reserve Deputies who volunteer their time in support of the Clark County Sheriff's Office. These are everyday citizens serving their community in an exciting and meaningful way. Our members can be found any time, day or night, on patrol, responding to emergency calls, protecting crime scenes, serving the public in large community events, and many other functions.
Reserve Deputies are trained at a state-certified law enforcement academy which is conducted free of charge, part time, locally in Clark County. Topics include criminal law; defensive tactics; firearms qualification; and proficiency in the many skills of law enforcement and public safety. Continual training and real world experience keeps us ready to serve.
The Sheriff provides all uniforms and equipment, valued at about $10,000 per deputy -- including handgun, Taser, portable radio, ballistic vest, all-weather jacket, boots, etc. All vital for the challenge of responding to 911 calls for service, enforcing traffic laws and assisting citizens in need.
Some of our volunteers go on to get hired as full-time deputies or custody officers, so it can be a great stepping stone to a law enforcement career. But most Reserve Deputies have other full-time jobs or are retired, so they serve without any goal for a paid position with the Sheriff's Office. Whether you are interested in a law enforcement career, or just want to volunteer in this vital role, we may have a place for you!
