    unfortunately reserve academy is nothing like the full academy. Mostly basics I believe. More like security officer training I believe.
    At least in Genesee County

    Can't speak for Genesee County, or any agencies in MI, but I started out as a reserve before going full-time. Glad I did, I took a $10k pay cut to become a cop, and knew I was making the right move because I had been a reserve for 2 years and knew what I was getting into. If the training for reserves in MI is equivalent to full-time officers, that will certainly help, too.

    Voluntary Reserve questions

    This coming week I will be submitting my application for the Genesee County Sheriff Reserves. Its a strictly voluntary program, and being that my job here in Flint has put me down to part time, I figured it couldnt be a better time to go back to school and finish up my degree. After running to low on cash to pay for school for a couple years, I have rekindled that LEO ember burning in my chest.
    I am currently awaiting my ccw to come back from the state, as I was interested in working some part time armed guard position. And in that came across someone talking of the county reserves, so I did a little research and talked to county, I figure what a great way to gain some invaluable experience, as well as rub elbows with the right people.
    I can only assume that having reserve experience could only help me in pursuit of a career in LE.
    I'm wondering if anyone here is or has experience as a reserve officer, what if it has helped them into a full time career position as a LEO.

    thanks
