Reserve Unit

Bel Aire Police Reserve Officers are fully commissioned, armed and uniformed, volunteer police officers. The Police Reserve Officer Program consists of community members, such as yourself, who want to volunteer as a Police Officer.  These officers supplement the full-time officers in a variety of duties throughout the Department primarily the Patrol Division and Court Services.  Most Reserve Officers work with officers, but others can qualify to patrol on their own.

This program is ideal for individuals who have an established career and do not wish to make a complete transition to full-time Police Officer.  Reserve Officers can enjoy the best of both worlds; maintain their chosen career while helping to monitor the City of Bel Aire.
