Reserve Officer Unit

The Pleasanton Police Department Reserve Officer Unit is comprised of civic-minded citizens who have voluntarily taken a California State Peace Officers Standards and Training program of structured classroom hours that has qualified them to work as a Reserve Police Officer.  Additionally they have further undergone a "Field Training Program" while assigned to a Pleasanton Police Field Training Officer (FTO), that upon completion qualifies them to work as a Pleasanton Reserve Police Officer.  As such, they possess the same status and authority recognized by the State of California as a full time paid police officer while performing the duties of a police officer.  Upon completion of his or her duties, the Reserve Officer then returns to regular civilian status.

The Reserve Police Officer Unit augments the Police Department by providing support services such as patrol, traffic control, public event security, vacation and welfare checks, crime prevention, crime scene and evidence security, prisoner transport, and various administrative functions.  There is virtually an opportunity within every unit of the Police Department for a Reserve Officer to work and make a valuable contribution.

The Pleasanton Police Department is always interested in adding qualified individuals to its Reserve Police Officer Unit. For further and more specific details regarding an appointment as a Pleasanton Police Reserve Officer, please contact Lt. Brian Laurence at (925) 931-5100.
