The Forsyth Police Department has a cadre of certified and trained reserve police
officers to assist with law enforcement activities in the City.
As non-paid volunteers, Reserve Police Officers are an important part of our department. Their
professional and dedicated efforts are invaluable to the department's overall mission.
Reserve police officers have the same training as full-time officers, the only difference
is they are volunteers. Our reserve officers have the same arrest authority as any
full-time officer and may be seen enforcing traffic violations, responding to calls
for service, working accidents, conducting traffic control duties, assisting with
special events, or partnered with another officer in a patrol car.
Our reserve officers are a valuable asset to this department and have earned our
respect and appreciation.
