Reserve Captain Steve Anderson
Reserve Unit Commander
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Unit is composed of sworn law enforcement officers who, for varied reasons, have other full time responsibilities but still want to give back to the community. The Reserve Unit’s purpose is to compliment the various bureaus throughout the agency in an ancillary manner. The primary focus of its members are to provide traditional law enforcement services as well as assist many non-profit organizations across the county by providing safe environments for the continued quality of life of all citizens during scheduled functions. The unit is divided into two units, each supervised by a Reserve Sergeant. Members of both squads must be law enforcement certified in the state of Florida and complete an internal field training program.
Examples of monthly tasks performed are Patrol Deputy, Jail Transportation Officer, School Resource Officer, Traffic Unit Deputy, Marine Patrol Deputy and providing safe escorts and security for many of the non-profit organizations that operate throughout the county.
Each member of the Reserve Unit is required to provide 20 hours of service per month in exchange for the maintenance of their bond and insurance.
The Reserve Unit is always looking for new members who want to serve the community in which they live. If you are a sworn law enforcement officer and are interested in serving the community in which you live, yet are unable to do so full time for varied reasons, then the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Unit is for you. If I can be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
