An unpaid civic volunteer position designed to offer citizens an excellent avenue to perform community service and gain experience in law enforcement service. 


This program is an excellent way for citizens to give back to the community and receive valuable training should they desire to enter a full-time career in law enforcement. The Anderson County Sheriff's Office is dedicated to providing the highest quality of law enforcement service to our citizens.

Applicants must meet all the same requirements as full-time deputies including: intensive background investigation, polygraph examination, psychological examination, and a physical fitness test. Once accepted into the training program, Reserve Deputy Sheriff Training will require approximately two to three months of classes to meet the state-required 140 hours.

After completing the training course and passing the state administered test, applicants will become Reserve Deputy Sheriffs with the Anderson County Sheriff's Office. Reserve Deputies are required by state law to perform a minimum of 20 hours of service per month to maintain their certification and to attend in-service training on a monthly basis.

There is no cost to participate in this program. Applicants who successfully complete the selection process will be provided all necessary equipment and training at no charge.
