Reserve Deputies

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office utilizes Reserve Deputies on various occasions. While on duty, these deputies have the same power of arrest as a full-time deputy. Reserve Deputies are not paid; instead, volunteer their time to the Sheriff's Office to help provide services to the citizens of Jackson County. Reserve Deputies enforce all state and local laws the same as full-time officers and are required to handle any type of situation that may arise. Reserve Deputies frequently fill in for full-time deputies when needed.

Additionally, Reserve Deputies must work a minimum of eight hours per month to maintain their certification in accordance with Arkansas State Law. The Jackson County Sheriff's Office Reserve Deputies meet once a month for training.
