Scotts Bluff Sheriff's reserves looking for new members
The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's Reserve is looking for a few new members.
Sheriff Mark Overman says they don't have a set number of reserve deputies, but they are down in numbers right now because one of the reserves was hired recently as a full time officer for another panhandle agency. Overman says many of the people like what they do with the Reserves and end up serving as a paid law officer.
Sheriff's Reserve members have to meet the same requirements and certification as regular full time law enforcement officers, and will also have to purchase their own uniforms, leather wear and a weapon, which will run a little over $1,000.
Overman says they are advertising this now since the training sessions required at the law enforcement training center in Grand Island will begin in the fall.
