Grenada County Reserves

The Reserve Unit is a group of dedicated individual from our community who wish to serve their fellow citizens by donating their time and talents to the Grenada County Sheriff’s Office. The unit is made up of certified deputies who support the operations of the Sheriff’s Office. While on duty, these un-paid professionals have the same legal authority as any other peace officer. Reserve deputies are required to receive annual certifications/qualifications, i.e. individual weapons qualifications, driver training, PPPCT, 1st Aid.

Some of the activities and or events the Reserve Deputies participate in are:

  • Promote public relations with local law enforcement in their community
  • Provide security and patrol at school functions, county functions and any event where extra security is needed/required.
  • Transport inmates to and from Grenada County to other locations, to and from.
  • Annual Thunder on Water
  • Monthly Grenada County Dirt Drags
  • Grenada Lake Events

All Reserve Deputies are required to attend the Grenada County LEOTA training class (or other MLEOTA certified class.

All Reserve Deputies are encouraged to attend continuing education by attending LE classes throughout the year.

Receiving no pay for the job they do, and spending time away from their home and family shows tremendous dedication to duty on the part of the reserves of Grenada County.
