Training

 

Our department is committed to professionalism and training to ensure that our officers meet the high standards of our community.

 

The following Training at a minimum is required of all Auxiliary Officers:

  • First Responder

  • CPR / Defibrillator

  • OC / Defensive tactics

  • Traffic and Pedestrian Control

  • Anti-Terrorism training

Yearly in-service is also required for many of these classes.

In addition to the above training, Auxiliary Officers must also participate in a 3 month ride-along with senior Auxiliary officers being uniformed.  This can be done in parallel with the classroom training.

After one year, officers are eligible to request attending the Reserve/Intermittent Police Academy.  Attendance at this academy is dependent upon Department sponsorship, good standing with the department and availability in the actual class.
