Many of our Police Reserve Officers join this Department to start a career in law enforcement, while others join with a willingness to serve and give something back to their community. Currently, Frankenmuth Police Reserve Officers assist the patrol division by providing crowd and traffic control at events, some with 100,000+ visitors in attendance. They also patrol with a full time officer, providing instant back-up, taking calls for service, following up on investigations, and testifying in court. Additionally, they may also work solo patrol shifts by bicycle and foot patrol.
The Frankenmuth Police Department is accepting applications for the position of Police Reserve Officer.
Becoming a Police Reserve Officer takes a dedicated, reliable and enthusiastic individual. The Frankenmuth Police Department prides itself on its stringent hiring and training standards for its Police Reserve Officer staff.
