Applications Open for Reserve Officers

February 28, 2011

The Mesa Police Department is currently seeking community members for the Reserve Police Officer program. The Reserve Police Officer program is made up of people from all walks of life, many who have satisfying civilian positions, but simply wish to do police work as a way of serving their community.

Applicants will be required to complete the same testing and screening process as all other Police Officers employed by the City of Mesa. If selected for the position, applicants would be required to complete all required training through the Chandler-Gilbert Community College or Glendale Community College Law Enforcement Academies. Applicants would be responsible for any cost associated with their training. With successful completion of the academy, Reserve Officers would receive AZPOST Peace Officer Certification and have the same authorities as a full-time police officer.
