Sheriff’s office recruits 11 reserve deputies


The Rogers County Sheriff’s Office officially announced the addition of 11 new community reserve deputies Saturday morning during an introduction ceremony at the Rogers County Courthouse. Recruits were recognized, along with nine reserves from across northeast Oklahoma, for their completion of the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET) courses.
The 240 hours of instruction that reserve deputies have to meet in order to be certified, include areas of traffic enforcement, patrol, defensive training and legal — among others. Through CLEET, the volunteer reserve training takes about four months to complete. 
Investigator Coy Jenkins said the 11 new reserves will provide additional volunteer support throughout the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office, having active roles in search and rescue, community events and investigation.
“Reserve deputies act as peace officers with arrest authority. They can complete any responsibility of a fulltime deputy,” said Jenkins. “Depending on the situation, support is utilized whenever reserves have the time, and assignments are initiated through email or phone text.”
He said the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office currently has a total of 36 community reserve deputies, and administrators continue to accept applications. Applicants must be high school graduates, 21 years of age or older with no criminal history.
