The Saginaw Police Reserve Unit has served the city of Saginaw since 1978. Under the control and supervision of the Saginaw
Police Department, the Reserves serve the community in a variety of ways. Some such duties include serving subpoenas, writing non-moving
violations, traffic control, and working events within the city.
Reserve officers work on a volunteer basis. The Reserves
depend on grant money and fundraisers to purchase equipment needed in their daily service.
Monthly training is made available
to Reserve officers by police department personnel. Some types of training has included Taser, Glock .40, shotgun, M4 rifle, as well
as defensive driving.
