The Reserve II Deputy program is a uniformed Sheriff's Office support organization open to all person age 21 and older, on an equal opportunity basis. Reserve II deputies work with regular deputies on various assignments. The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office takes great pride in the Reserve II deputy's civic spirit and willingness to serve.
Each Reserve II deputy must serve a minimum of 20 volunteer hours each month on assigned duties. Those hours are made up of detail assignments through out the Sheriff's Office.
Selected candidates will attend a 360-hour reserve academy at no expense to the individual. The academy is held Monday - Thursday, 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM and some Saturdays at Hillsborough Community College. If the individual has completed a Florida law enforcement academy their certification may be re-activated. The Sheriff's Office pays the tuition costs for this academy. Academy courses of instruction include criminal and civil law, criminal investigations, human relations, report writing, defense tactics, first aid, CPR, and firearms training.
