Town of Miami Lakes Police Reserve Program 
Miami Lakes, FL -  The Town of Miami Lakes is looking for Reserve and Auxiliary Officers. The Program is administered by the Miami-Dade County Police Department and is generally comprised of community members who volunteer their time to fulfill many of the roles handled by full-time sworn police officers. Their primary responsibility is to supplement the Department's efforts in the prevention and detection of crime and the general enforcement of laws while assigned specific police duties. The Reserve and Auxiliary officers will also perform those vital functions that are necessary to assist full-time officers in emergency situations. The Reserve and Auxiliary officers are required to complete much of the same training as fulltime officers and work alongside them in every aspect of Department operations.

Reserve and Auxiliary officers are generally retired police officers, either from the Miami Police Department itself, or from other law enforcement agencies. These motivated citizens continue to contribute to the enhancement of the quality of life in their community. Their law enforcement background and expertise coupled with their insight into the city's neighborhoods enables them to be extremely effective spokespersons for their communities. Their involvement in the community provides the full-time police officers with increased insight into the quality of life issues in the neighborhoods that they patrol routinely.
