Congrats to your son. Good luck to him!My son Graduated from the Police Academy here in Jacksonville. Passed his state test and will be starting out as a Reserve Officer in a couple of weeks. Until he finds a permanent position.
If anyone here has Reserve experience here in Jax please let me know.
Would that be the Daytona Beach PD?The agency I worked for had reserves who were fully trained (been through the FTO program) and would fill in for officers who were on vacation, sick, and work special events (Bike Week, Biketoberfest, Arts Festivals, parades, football games, races, etc.) Some of the neighboring jurisdictions that had reserves only used them for prisoner transport, courtroom security, or walk-in complaints. Our reserves would come in check out a vehicle, radio, long gun, and then be assigned a zone just like the full-time officers. But it does depend on the agencies needs.
