Reserve Deputy Sheriffs are utilized to supplement and support the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office. Like full-time Deputies, Reserve Deputies are professionally trained and duly sworn law enforcement personnel (while on-duty). In most cases, Reserves are assigned to the same duties as full-time Deputies, special events, traffic control and any other duty assigned by the Sheriff of Jasper County. Since Reserve Deputies have similar law enforcement powers as full-time Deputies, they are required by law to meet the same hiring, background, training, medical and psychological standards as full-time Deputies. Reserve Deputies are required to successfully complete yearly state mandated training hours. Reserve Deputies are non-paid and volunteer their time to protect and serve the citizens of Jasper County.
