The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is conducting testing Jan. 19 for reserve officers.
Candidates must pass a written examination, oral board review, physical test and background investigation.
Sheriff's office spokesman Sgt. Jim Halsey said joining the reserve program is an option for people contemplating law enforcement careers or who want to serve the community. He said there was an increasing need for female reserve officers to assist with extraditions.
"Reserve deputies work an array of details, augmenting the sheriff department's personnel, and may be assigned to assist in the jail division, patrol division or elsewhere as the need arises," Halsey said.
"Reserve officers receive the training and experience law enforcement agencies look for when hiring new officers," he said.
Testing is set for 8 a.m. Jan 19 at the Douglas County Judicial and Law Enforcement Center, 1625 Eighth St., Minden.
Halsey said applicants must be at lease 21 to apply.
Participants should contact the Douglas County human resource office, 782-9860, to obtain an application prior to the testing date.
For information, contact Halsey at 782-9931.
