What is the Reserve Officer Program?
The Munford Police Department Reserve Officer Program is a volunteer program. Reserve officers will receive all required training in house. The officers donate their personal time to the city and help full-time officers on a daily basis. The reserve officers are required to ride a minimum of 24 hours per month.
What are Reserve Officers used for?
They are utilized for special events such as Celebrate Munford activities, Christmas Parade, and school events.
