The Salt Lake Police Department has announced plans to form a volunteer Police Reserve program.
The reserve officers will assist full-time officers with regular law enforcement duties. The volunteer officers will work weekends and evenings in order to reduce conflict with their regular jobs. They will also be required to purchase and maintain a police uniform at their own expense. The first class of volunteers is expected to begin training in mid-July.Those wishing to apply must meet the following minimum requirements:
- Successfully complete P.O.S.T. approved special-functions training.
- Pass a physical-agility test.
- Pass a selection process including an oral interview, medical examination, background investigation and a polygraph test.
- Submit to a chemical screen test for the purpose of detecting the presence of alcohol and/or controlled substances in the body.
Those interested in applying should contact Lt. Bill Gray at 799-3111.
