The WCSO Reserve Deputy Program
All Reserves generally are required to purchase and maintain their own personal equipment including most uniform wear such as duty belts, holsters and handguns when so authorized.
- All Reserves must annually “qualify” and show continuing proficiency in any specialized equipment AND any weapons systems they are authorized to utilize WHILE ON OFFICIAL DUTY in the same manner as a regular A.P.O.S.T. Certified Deputy Sheriff.
- In general, “LIMITED STATUS” reserves perform specific specialized tasks and are not subject to APOST standards imposed on A.P.O.S.T. Certified Deputies.
- Are subject to 24 hr call-out within reasonable limitations of their full-time jobs and families.
