Our department values integrity, commitment and training and we place a great deal of trust in our reserves. The result is that we are allowed to work a variety of reserve details as well as general patrol. Contact the Sheriff's office for more information.

Excellent! We have had many reserves proceed to full-time status with both the Placer County Sheriff's Office (PCSO) and other agencies. Naturally, an excellent reserve deputy sheriff would be encouraged to apply with the PCSO. However, if your goal is to remain a reserve then you will find your time both rewarding and challenging. For more information, contact the Sheriff's Office.
As a level II you may work anytime as long as you team up with a regular full time deputy or a level I Field Training Program reserve deputy. As a level I, if you complete the Field Training Program, you may work in the county wherever and as often as you wish. Any further questions should be directed to the Sheriff's Office.

Yes and no. As a level II reserve you can work general patrol under the supervision of a regular full time deputy or a level I Field Training Program (FTO) reserve deputy.

Every 3rd Thursday of the month we have a mandatory reserve meeting that may last up to 4 hours, but are generally from 1,900 to 2,100 hours. Reserve business and training is conducted during this time. The meetings are generally held at the Auburn Justice Center.
There are 4 to 5 range days a month, any of which you may attend. At least one of them is a night shoot. The department provides all ammunition.
You may work general patrol anytime. The only exception to this is if a detail requires staffing. You may attend all Advanced Officer Training (EVOC, tactics, etc.) during the regular deputies training cycle. If you write a ticket or submit a report for a crime (or are listed in one) then you should expect to occasionally get a subpoena to court.
