Volunteers

The Reserve Bureau of the Sheriff’s Office patrols the streets of our county and performs other important public safety duties for the community. These fully trained Deputies are an important resource for Shelby County. The Emergency Services division is made up of volunteers that patrol Shelby County to assist with traffic crashes, respond to medical emergencies and conduct search and rescue missions.  This group is trained in dealing with a broad range of emergencies and provides assistance to our citizens when they need it most. The Community Services Volunteer division is a group of volunteers that regularly check on the well-being of the elderly and disabled.  This is a very important service to help protect our some of our most vulnerable citizens. The Volunteers for the Jail division is a part of the Sheriff's Office that lend a unique skill set to provide assistance to the incarcerated. These opportunities range from Educational and Rehabilitative programs such as AA/NA, GED, to Religious Services (i.e. Protestant, Catholic, Muslim, etc...).
