The Galena Police Department is seeking highly motivated individuals from the community and beyond to join our ranks as a member of our Reserve Officer Corps. Reserves are fully uniformed and armed officers. They work as a force multiplier to assist full and part time officers with the suppression of criminal activity in our community. Reserve Officers also assist with special events such as parades, ball games, community policing, and the annual Galena Days festival. The Reserve Officer candidate MUST be able to devote no less than 16 hours monthly to the agency. This includes one mandatory training meeting each month and potential court appearances. Candidates will be subjected to a criminal background check as well as an oral board and peer evaluation before taking an oath as a Reserve Officer. No experience is necessary, however the drive to support your community is! You must be 21 years of age and able to legally own and possess a firearm with no felony or domestic violence convictions.
