The Laramie County Sheriffs' Office Reserves constitutes an organization of citizen volunteers who augment nearly all of the Sheriffs' Office operations: patrol, jail, prisoner transport, court security, detectives, crime prevention and community relations, emergency operations, and women's handgun safety classes.
There are currently two classifications of Reserves:
Commissioned Reserves (Reserve Deputy Sheriff):
These deputies must obtain and maintain Wyoming POST Certification (required of all law enforcement officers in the state). They are uniformed and are utilized, in most cases, in all reserve operations. Each commissioned reserve may work along side the regular deputies, or may work independently on special projects.
These non-commissioned volunteers are utilized in special capacities within the Sheriffs' Office. For example: assisting in the Women's Handgun Safety Classes, public relations and inmate visitation program. Although there is no POST Certification requirement, nor are they uniformed, they perform essential assistance in critical areas.
Begun in 1975, the Sheriffs' Office Reserve Program was the first in Wyoming, and has served as the model for others throughout this state. Currently fifteen citizens from diverse occupations within the Laramie County area make up the Reserve Force.
As stated above, all members are unpaid volunteers who donate a minimum of 60 (sixty) hours per calendar quarter of volunteer service to maintain membership.
Each commissioned reserve deputy is provided Sheriffs' Office uniforms and associated equipment. Each reserve provides his or her own leather, vest and Sheriffs' Office approved weapon (as do the regular deputies.)
