The Town employs reserve officers who augment the various units and functions of the police department. Our reserve officers are Level I Reserves as defined by California POST, and are paid for their services. TPD reserve officers carry full peace officer powers when they are on-duty and are trained and equipped much like their fulltime counterparts.
TPD reserve officers are frequently called upon to serve the community during special events such as the 4th of July parade and fireworks show, boat patrol in the summertime, and traffic control in the winter. They also supplement Patrol and Investigations on an ongoing basis.
