Bryan Reserve Police Force Looks for More Volunteers
The Bryan Police Department Reserve Unit will host two informational meetings to recruit new Reserve Officers. The meetings will be held on February 24, 2010 and March 17, 2010 at 7:00pm, at the Bryan Justice Center in the upstairs training room. The informational meetings will give the citizen a chance to learn and ask questions about the Reserve Unit and receive information about the fall police academy. The fall police academy starts in August and the department will pay for the police academy if the individual is interested in becoming a Reserve Officer. Anyone interested in becoming a Reserve Officer with the Bryan Police Department is encouraged to attend.
Members of the Reserve Unit are made up of community members who have careers outside of the Bryan Police Department, but unselfishly give of their time and efforts to serve as police officers for the City of Bryan. The Reserve Unit is comprised of licensed, non-compensated peace officers that dedicate their personal time to assist the department in any capacity designated by the administration.
Reserve Officers supplement the full-time officers in a variety of duties throughout the department. Their responsibilities include assisting the department with its missions of preserving the peace, enforcing the laws, and responding as needed for police emergencies. They patrol in vehicles, on foot patrols, or on bicycle patrol. This program is an opportunity for individuals who have an established career but do not wish to make a full transition to full-time Police Officer. Reserve Officers can enjoy the best of both worlds - maintain their chosen career while helping make the community a safer place to live.
If you are interested in becoming a Reserve Officer for the City of Bryan Police Department, please contact Lt. Jim Stewart at 979-209-5370 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Together we can make a difference in our community.
