Police Reserves

The Augusta Department of Public Safety (ADPS) maintains a police reserve unit made up of a group of well-trained and exceptionally dedicated volunteers. The current ADPS Reserve Unit was established on September 1, 2009 after the previous reserve unit program had largely faded away in the early 1990’s.

The reserves are a special group of people who volunteer their time to ensure the safety of the citizens within the City of Augusta by enhancing police response, strengthening traffic enforcement, and generally augmenting the ADPS patrol division. This group of committed volunteer officers have responsibilities similar to that of a full-time public safety officer and serve in a fully uniformed, city-commissioned capacity.

Since the first five members of the current ADPS Reserves Unit started their initial training, thousands of hours have been volunteered and numerous members of the unit have moved on to pursue careers with the ADPS. The ADPS and the City of Augusta wish to highlight the undying loyalty and devotion to the community the reserve unit members exhibit and look forward to the years to come.
