RESERVE DEPUTY PROGRAM
A Reserve Officer is a non-paid volunteer who assists the Anderson County Sheriffs Office in enforcing the laws of South Carolina. The Reserve Officer is appointed by and serves at the pleasure of the sheriff. A Reserve Officer candidate must successfully complete the SC Reserve Officer Training Program to include an end of course written evaluation prepared by the Academy.
A Reserve Officer must provide a minimum of 20 hours of service each month which includes ongoing training each month.
The primary purpose of the Reserve Officer Program is to provide the community with an auxiliary unit of trained, competent police officers. These officers supplement our regular deputies and can be used in the event of an emergency when manpower is critical.
Reserve Deputies wear the same uniform and badge that full-time police officers wear. On a part-time basis, they perform many of the same duties and functions that a full-time officer does.
The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office currently has 17 Reserve Officers that freely give of their time to serve the citizens of Anderson County.
