Reserve Deputy Program

Reserve Deputy Program

The Henry County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) has maintained an active Reserve Unit for over 40 years. The Unit is comprised of sworn personnel to assist the HCSO regarding law enforcement and public safety functions for the citizens of Henry County. The Reserve Unit donates valuable time in support of the community by providing security and traffic control for many of the County’s large events and activities. Reserve Deputies assist the Community Relations Unit in many of the public events where they distribute literature and assist in adult and youth education programs. 

Reserve Deputies participate in a wide variety of law enforcement activities based on their qualifications and the needs of the Sheriff’s Office. Examples include:
