Solution 1: Reserve Police Force
We propose implementing a Reserve Officer Force, utilizing retired or prior service peace officers who would like to give back to Redding. Within this proposed program, qualified, trained Reserve Officers would act as a second officer, or back-up officer, on the scene to support the officers on patrol. The goal of this program is, by adding Reserve Officers, we can help keep more crime prevention and enforcement personnel where we need it, patrolling our streets, and give the Redding Police Department more personnel to focus on proactive enforcement activities.
Call to Action:
If you are a retired or prior service police officer, we encourage you to volunteer for this program. Please contact RPD for additional information.
