What is a Reserve Officer?

St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Posse members are reserve officers. A reserve officer is a part-time or volunteer law enforcement officer who serves in a supplementary capacity to full-time officers. Our reserve officers are sworn peace officers with the same legal authority as regular police officers when activated and on-duty.

Most posse members have full-time jobs outside of law enforcement, and they contribute their time and skills to support the St. Joe County Police Department and other local departments. Training is similar to regular officers, and our members are held to the same standards of professionalism and accountability.
