Fully-commissioned Reserve Deputies volunteer their time in support of the Clark County Sheriff's Office. These citizens serve 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.
Our Reserve Deputies are trained in one of two ways: they attend a local Reserve Academy or they have previously been trained as a full-time or Reserve Deputy or Officer. Because no local Reserve Academies are planned for 2020, we are only recruiting Reserve Deputies who were previously commissioned as law enforcement officers.
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. These tools are vital to meet 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. 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!
