RESERVE POLICE OFFICER
THE POSITION

There are three classifications or “levels” Reserve Police Officers. Level 1 reserve officers may exercise the full powers and duties of a police officer without immediate supervision. Level 2 reserve officers may perform the same duties, but only under immediate supervision. Level 3 reserve officers work under direct supervision and are limited to duties that generally do not involve direct law enforcement, such as providing security and traffic control at special events, parking enforcement, working in the jail, collecting and processing evidence, and other duties that are unlikely to result in physical arrests. The Monterey Park Police Department uses all three levels of reserve officer.

Upon successful completion and graduation from the Reserve Academy, Level 1 and Level 2 reserve officers will be assigned to a full-time Field Training Officer to begin field training. While deployed in a marked police unit and in uniform, reserve officers learn the basics of street patrol and must successfully complete 400 hours of field training and participate in other details as assigned. Officers in training are required to work a minimum of 25 hours each month until field training is complete and a minimum of 16 hours per month thereafter.

General duties and assignment of Level 1 and Level 2 MPPD reserve officers include uniformed patrol, which involves responding to crimes in progress, traffic accidents, taking crime reports, issuing citations and making arrests. Officers also provide basic law enforcement services at community events, such as parades, festivals, sports events and dances. All reserve officers are required to attend monthly meetings and monthly firearms training. Level 1 and Level 2 reserve officers also must complete 24 hours of continuing professional training every two years. Upon successful completion of the department’s field training program and probationary period, reserve officers may be considered for any of the following assignments: Uniform Patrol, Community Relations, Detectives, Jail Operations, Range Safety Officer, Traffic Investigations, Gang Enforcement, Narcotics, Officer Recruitment, Bike Patrol, or Special Response Team (SRT).

The MPPD Reserve Program is a professionally operated program managed and administered by reserve staff. Reserve staff holds rank within the reserve organization to better perform administrative duties, such as: training, recruitment, patrol, special details, range and monthly meetings. Reserve officers are sworn voluntary employees of the City of Monterey Park.
