The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is currently accepting applications for Reserve Deputy Sheriff positions. Applications will be accepted now through August 1.
This is an unpaid, civic volunteer position offered to citizens of Beaufort County who desire to perform community service and gain experience in law enforcement. There is no cost for the Reserve Deputy Training Program. Applicants who successfully complete the selection process will be provided with all necessary equipment and training at no charge.
Applicants must meet all the same requirements as full-time deputies, including but not limited to: intensive background investigation, polygraph examination, and physical fitness testing. Once accepted into the training program, Reserve Deputies will be required to complete the state-mandated 140 hours of training, to be held over a two to three month period. This training is conducted locally on weekday evenings and some weekends.
Upon certification, Reserve Deputies are required to perform a minimum of 20 hours of service monthly and must attend all in-service training to maintain state certification standards.
This program is a unique opportunity for citizens age 21 and older to get involved and make a meaningful difference in the community. It also offers invaluable training and experience to those interested in learning about and entering the world of law enforcement.
Those interested in applying are encouraged to contact Staff Sergeant William Angelo at 843-255-3138 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
