The Reserve Program provided more than 23,774 hours of manpower in 2009 in traffic enforcement, warrant execution, firearms training, communications and corrections. This volunteer time represents more than $641,898 of manpower.
Also in 2009, reserves executed 2,287 criminal complaints and warrants, which resulted in 166 arrests; executed 2,751 traffic arrests and warnings; investigated 86 motor vehicle crashes; and logged 89,998 miles of patrol throughout the parish.
The program has served as the “springboard” for many deputies that have found a full-time career in law enforcement with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, many of whom are now leaders within our agency. Reserves provide law enforcement support for numerous Civic Events including Cooking for Kids, Special Olympics, Balloon Festival, Mary Byrd Perkins Cancer Event, and parades. The deadline to turn in applications to attend the academy is July 15, 2010. The Academy starts September 18th
