The Marion County Sheriff's Office Reserve Division is the only reserve program in America capable of completely replacing all Deputies on the road while they attend training without accumulating overtime. The Reserve Division was formed in 1968 to supplement the Marion County Sheriff's Office Road Patrol. Reserve officers are non-paid volunteers that work in investigations ,serving warrants, jail duties, weather and disaster call-outs and crime prevention. Reserve Deputies are also detailed for the Indianapolis 500 Race and 500 Festival Parade, the Brickyard 400, the Marion County Fair, Indianapolis Colts games and other public events.
Reserve Deputies include a variety of professionals including nurses, teachers, firefighters, EMT's, accountants, investment brokers and people who own their own businesses. Reserve officers have the same police powers and are issued the same equipment as MCSO Deputies. The Reserve Division has its own rank structure and deputies are provided the same in-service training as Deputies. A fleet of cars is assigned to the Reserve Division and deputies receive a vehicle based upon the amount of time donated to the department, their availability and their performance. The Reserve Division utilizes cars assigned to the division 24 hours a day.
