The Deputy Sheriff Reserves are a fully volunteer uniformed program that supports the Sheriff's Department in various ways throughout the county. Reserve Officers are required to pledge a minimum of 10 hours per month. The volunteer hours may be planned out in advance, like our Drug Take Back Day or community events; or they could be in the form of a call-in, such as a large vehicle accident. The Deputy Reserve Program is a vital help in our growing community and a valuable resource for the Sheriff's Department. If you would like to know more about this program please call 304-267-7000 and ask about the Deputy Reserve Program.
