    Remember, that when an agency writes a policy...it can also re-write that policy.

    Many reserve programs through the state have trouble maintaining a good number of active participants. The biggest obstacle to maintaining numbers in many programs...is that the agency keeps hiring people.

    Policies aside, many agencies use reserve officer pools as a "ready pool" of vetted applicants, who can be flipped to full-time status at the stroke of a pen.

    When the hiring flood-gates open...who's going to be a more attractive candidate: The fresh-faced recruit who needs a full hiring process, academy, and FTO...or the reserve who's already POST certified, through FTO, and has your agency's uniform hanging in his/her closet?

    Many agencies around the valley have revived their reserve programs, and some have run more testing processes in the last 12 months, than they have in the last 5 years. I've no doubt in my mind that these agencies know exactly what they're doing....putting their hands on future officers they can tap in a hurry when it comes time to fill big numbers.

    Yournicked! is talking about the agencies that "require" +-2,040 documented hours (the equivalent of 1 yr.) before they will consider you an "in state lateral".

    As a reserve officer/deputy, you will be AZPOST certified upon the completion of your academy. This means that you have the *potential* to fill any full-time vacancies that your department may have in the future, or simply transfer over to a different agency that is hiring full-time.
    Posse members are not AZPOST certified and primarily act as support for Deputies during operations.
    Both are volunteer positions with no salaries involved...
