Los Banos Police Department is recruiting reserve Police Officers

The Los Banos Police Department is continuously recruiting Reserve Police Officers. Reserve Police Officers are volunteers and in some cases paid part time Officers. Reserve Police Officers are highly skilled and meet the same level of standards and training as our sworn Police Officers.

Level II Reserve Police Officer, Penal Code sections 830.6(a)(1) and 832.6(a)(2)
Level II reserve officers may perform general law enforcement assignments while under the immediate supervision of a peace officer who has completed the Regular Basic Course.

Level I Reserve Police Officer, Penal Code sections 830.6(a)(1) and 832.6(a)(1)
Level I reserve officers may work alone and perform the same duties as full-time regular officers after completing the field training program and with the approval of the Reserve Coordinator or Division Commander.

The California Reserve Peace Officer Program (RPOP) is composed of members of our society who choose to dedicate a portion of their time to community service by working as part-time employees or volunteers with law enforcement agencies. These officers work with full-time regular officers to provide law enforcement services at the city, county, district, and state levels. Approximately 600 law enforcement agencies currently employ nearly 6200 reserve officers.
