Reserve Deputy Program

Sheriff’s Reserve Deputies


Lewis County Sheriff’s Office has an active Volunteer Reserve Program. Reserve deputies typically work with full-time deputies in performance of their duties. Tenured reserves who have passed appropriate training are also allowed to perform patrol duties by themselves with minimal supervision. While the Reserve Program is a recruitment tool and a stepping stone for a full-time law enforcement career, it is also ideal for someone with an established career who wants be involved in law enforcement, and to make a positive difference in their community.
