The Wasilla Police Department does have a Reserve Officer program. Participation is on a voluntary basis and offers training, experience and opportunities to serve the community in a worthwhile manner. Reserve officers act as volunteer police officers for the department. They may be called upon to assist in normal patrol functions, at special events and details, with investigations and in times of disaster or emergency. The selection process is basically the same as for a regular full time officer. The process may include a written test, oral board, individual interview, physical agility test, background investigation, polygraph exam and a psychological examination. Initial training normally consists of approximately 120 hours of introductory law enforcement training. The training is provided by the department. Following initial training, reserve officers are expected to dedicate at least 20 hours per month to the unit. Normally, there is no set schedule and reserve officers can complete their 20 hour commitment at their convenience. In addition, two training sessions are offered each month. Officers are expected to attend at least one of these sessions. Uniforms and other required equipment are provided by the department. Footwear is not provided. Reserve officers may purchase and provide approved personal equipment if they desire. Active hiring for the Reserve Program occurs usually once or twice a year and is advertised in the local newspaper. You may also inquire at the Wasilla Police Department as to whether active hiring is taking place at 907.352.5401.
