There are opportunities available to volunteer with the Woodbury Police Reserve program.
The program, which began in 1996, is comprised of group of men and women serving under the auspices of the Woodbury Police Department. Reserve officers do not carry firearms and do not have authority to make arrests or issue citations. The reserves are agents of the PD and can act as witnesses in court cases and provide additional information to police officers that may involve law enforcement actions.
Reserve officers come from varied professions and backgrounds. The Police Reserves provide a wide range of community policing services to the public such as park checks, traffic direction, crime scene security, and search and inventory of vehicles. The group has been called upon for a variety of tasks such as:
- transport of prisoners to treatment centers and Washington County Jail
- inventory and search of vehicles
- vehicle lockouts
- animal control
- motorist assistance
- other call assistance
- community call outs, such as extra security at the Hugo tornado in 2008
For more information send a letter of interest to email@example.com. Applications are accepted year round, and new reserve officers are added as needed.
