CLARKSVILLE, IN (September 9, 2021) – The Clarksville Police Department is searching for a few good men and women to join their popular Police Reserves Program. The program was started nearly 50 years ago to help support the department, and provide training to future officers. Those who serve in the reserve program receive specialized training in exchange for volunteering to assist the police department. Clarksville Police Chief Mark Palmer says 95% of their new hires traditionally come from the Reserves Program.
“The experience and training you receive from our Reserve Program today will make you our next full-time officer tomorrow,” said Clarksville Police Chief Mark Palmer.
So what do Reserve Officers do? One of their main duties is to support the department’s full-time officers when additional assistance is needed, such as special events in the community. Reserve Officers are also tasked with assisting the department with community outreach events such as school functions.
