Police Reserves

Police Reserve Officers serving the communityWoodbury Police Reserves are a group of volunteers who work directly with sworn police officers to supplement the Woodbury Public Safety team.

This volunteer program puts community members on the street, in uniform, for a minimum of 10 hours each month. During their shifts they provide assistance to police officers in several ways including:

  • Prisoner transports
  • Vehicle searches and inventories
  • Crime scene security
  • After-hours park patrol

Our dedicated reserve officers give back to their community in limitless ways while enhancing the work of Woodbury's sworn police officers.
