Join the Orange County Sheriff Reserves

If you are looking for an exciting opportunity to make a difference in your community and are committed to making Orange County a better place for us all to live and work, the Sheriff’s Reserves might be for you.


The Reserve Division includes both sworn and non-sworn members.  Sworn Reserve Deputies are professionally trained and duly sworn law enforcement personnel, volunteering their time to work alongside career law enforcement personnel.  In most cases, Reserves are assigned to the same duties as regular deputies. Routine tasks such as patrol, booking, surveillance, investigative, and undercover work are just some examples of reserve duties.  Professional Services Responders (PSRs) are non-sworn volunteers who have no arrest powers but support the Sheriff’s Department by donating their time and their private-sector expertise in a wide range of fields.


Reserve Deputy Testing is scheduled for Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 5:00 a.m. at the Regional Training Academy located at 15991 Armstong Avenue in Tustin. Reserve Deputy testing includes a general aptitude written exam, physical agility test, and a pre-screen background check.


Professional Services Responders (PSRs) are non-sworn volunteers who have no arrest powers but who support the Sheriff’s Department in other ways, donating their time and their private-sector expertise in a wide range of fields.  The PSRs pre-screening is also scheduled for Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. at the Regional Training Academy located at 15991 Armstrong Avenue in Tustin.
