The Troup County Sheriff’s Office announced the start of its first Reserve Deputy Program at the agency.
The deputies who serve in this program are unpaid volunteer deputies. Each candidate for the reserve program must meet several minimum standards such as, be a POST certified officer in good standing, and complete the pre-employment application and interview process. They must work a minimum of five hours of service per quarter.
The program will allow current deputies who retire or leave the sheriff’s office to still give some of their time serving the community and the agency by transitioning into the role of reserve deputy.
Four men, Keith Flory, Richard Moon, Haywood Cliett and Josh Miller, are currently serving as Reserve Deputies.
Sheriff James Woodruff implemented the program and believes it will not only benefit the agency but the community as well.
