Albemarle Co. Sheriff Seeking More Reserve Deputies

Nov. 21, 2013

The Albemarle County Sheriff’s Office is looking for more volunteers to complete their Reserve Division.

Sheriff Chip Harding is adding ten additional reserve deputy positions, bringing the total up to 60.

In a press release, Sheriff Harding said, "I am trying to keep the Reserve Division fully staffed to avoid having to ask the Board of Supervisors for additional paid staff.”

The Reserve Division helps with court room security, search and rescue, firearm safety related training, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and assorted other crime prevention programs.

Reserves volunteer their time around Fourth of July each year to direct traffic at the Scottsville, Crozet and Free Union Parades as well as Autism and Alzheimer fund raisers during the year.

Academy training begins this winter, with classes held on evenings and weekends.

Any citizens over the age of 21 that are interested can call the sheriff's office. Applications are due by November 29th.
