Reserve Deputies

The Sheriff organizes the Dixie County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Deputy Program and serves at the discretion of the Sheriff. The Reserve provides supplemental personnel for routine law enforcement activities, enhances the Sheriff’s Office’s public service functions, and assists in search and rescue missions.

The Reserve Deputy is a member who has received full certification from the State of Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission as a law enforcement officer and who volunteers their time to the office. This deputy is committed to protecting the public and preserving the peace while volunteering in various assignments within the Sheriff’s Office. The volunteers work alone or with a full-time certified Deputy Sheriff. Responsibilities include volunteering in routine patrol, criminal and special investigations, traffic enforcement, community policing, and school and community-based events.

Reserve Deputies are required to review, be knowledgeable in, and adhere to all department policies and procedures. The Reserve Deputies alleviate pressure from the patrol units and strive to assist whenever needed. Dixie County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Unit encourages and welcomes interest in the Reserve Program. Please get in touch with Sergeant B. Powell with our Reserve Program if you are interested in assisting law enforcement at (352)498-1245 or [email protected]
