  • Reserve Deputy/Officer in San Antonio Area

    Does anyone know of any good departments that have a good robust Reserve program in the San Antonio area?

    I meant to comment on this last week and forgot. Sorry.

    What are you looking for? A department just to reserve for? Or a department that actively hires their reserves and gives them the first shot at full time opening?

    If all you want is to be a reserve, contact the Bexar County Sheriff's Office. They have run a large reserve department for at least 50 years that I know of. Reserves could do almost anything, from working the magistrate's office, extradition, warrants, civil process, patrol, etc. They will carry you as a full time peace officer, allow off-duty carry, and they will provide you with all required in-service training. You will be required to work 2 days a month, usually Saturdays or Sundays, and then you will have certain special events such as parades you will have to work, as you're available. The last I heard this information was current.

    As for police departments in Bexar County, I can't really help any more because all of information is old, and as administrations change, so does the emphasis on reserve programs.

      Yes I want to stay federal, so I just want a reserve deputy position....nothing more. Does Bexar run a reserve academy or do I just go to the local college?

        Bexar County only holds academies for full time employees. I don't know of any agency in this entire end of the state that runs an academy for reserves, or will sponsor someone to be a reserve. If you aren't TCLEOSE certified as a Peace Officer, you'll have to get certified through one of the local academies first, either San Antonio College or AACOG.

          Yea it looks like SA College has a pretty flexible program, day, nights or just sundays. Once I get through FTO I am going to get on that. I am surprised SAPD does not have a reserve program.

            I know this is an old thread but I'm also mildly curious about reserve opportunities in the San Antonio area. Is Bexar County still the way to go?
