Cadets participate in police ride-alongs, routine patrols, crime prevention activity, community outreach events and on-going monthly training. Cadets get first-hand knowledge regarding how law enforcement serves its community.
The Police Reserves are a group of volunteer citizens who are interested in serving the City of Tigard to make it a safer and better community. Reserve officers will primarily supplement the Patrol Division field forces, performing those duties regularly carried out by the Division. Reserves may also be used to assist the Investigation and Records Divisions, and to perform any assignment, at the direction of the Chief of Police.
