RESERVE DEPUTY PROGRAM
A Reserve Deputy is a non-paid volunteer who assists the Anderson County Sheriff's Office in enforcing the laws of South Carolina. The Reserve Deputy is appointed by and serves at the discretion of the Sheriff. A Reserve Deputy candidate must successfully complete the SC Reserve Officer Training Program to include an end of course written evaluation prepared by the Academy.
A Reserve Deputy must provide a minimum of 20 hours of service each month including on-going training.
The primary purpose of the Reserve Officer Program is to provide the community with an auxiliary unit of trained, competent law enforcement personnel. These deputies supplement our regular, full-time deputies and can be used in the event of an emergency when additional manpower is critical.
Reserve Deputies wear the same uniform and badge that full-time deputies wear. On a part-time basis, they perform many of the same duties and functions that a full-time deputy 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.
