Manteca Police Reserve Officers are members of the community with regular “day jobs” who serve on a volunteer basis and have the same arresting authority as paid officers. They are trained and equipped to supplement and provide professional assistance to the patrol division during emergencies and special events. Reserve officers are also qualified to ride patrol, thus enabling the police department to put additional staffing on the streets at a minimal cost since reserve officers volunteer their services. The Manteca Police reserve unit currently has an authorized strength of 25 officers. Reserve officers get involved for the betterment of their community. One of the remarkable aspects of the reserve unit is that over the years, many full time law enforcement employees have found their roots by starting as a reserve officer and volunteering their time with the department.
To apply for the Reserve Unit please contact the Department at 209-456-8286 for more details.
