Reserve Constable Program
Delta Police Reserve Constables are volunteers who participate in community policing and crime prevention activities while under the supervision of a police officer.
The Reserve Constable must commit to volunteer a minimum of 16 hours each month. The hours may include, but are not limited to, training, ride-a-longs with patrol members, and participation in community events and programs. There is also a mandatory monthly meeting.
The Delta Police recognizes that a number of applicants interested in the Reserve Program are also interested in obtaining employment as regular members. However, Delta Police also encourage civic-minded citizens who are solely interested in serving their community in a unique and rewarding manner to also consider the Reserve Program.
