Minnesota statute defines a reserve officer as an individual whose services are utilized by a law enforcement agency to provide supplementary assistance at special events, traffic or crowd control, and administrative or clerical assistance. Reserve officer duties do not include enforcement of criminal laws and they do not have full powers of arrest or authorization to carry a firearm on duty.

Applicants must be a citizen of the United States, be 18 years of age or older and possess a valid MN driver’s license. Reserve members will participate in detailed training including: first aid/CPR, use of force, handcuffing techniques, crowd management, prisoner transport, traffic control, crime scene/event security, radio communication and search and rescue.
