Reserve Officer Program

Unit Duties

Our Reserve Officer Unit assists our sworn officers and maintain the same rights as sworn officers in every legal sense within Hobart’s city boundaries.

Typical duties include:

  • Booking prisoners
  • Patrol
  • Prisoner transport
  • Response to calls for service
  • Traffic control
  • Working court
  • Working public events

Join the Unit

Our police officers can’t be everywhere at all times, but the more officers we have on the road, the better chance we have of stopping crime. Our Reserve Unit is just that, they are the extra man power our city needs without the raise in budget we cannot afford. Our reserve officers work for the experience and passion for the job.
