Sheriff's Reserves

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Reserve is an organization of volunteer law enforcement officers that has existed for the past 27 years in support of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. The unit supplies supplemental manpower to the Sheriff’s Office for various activities and operations throughout the year. The unit consists of 23 officers. The majority of these volunteers have completed the required training and are certified Ohio peace officers. 

The Reserve Unit is divided into two divisions: Corrections and Law Enforcement. The largest is the Corrections Division. Corrections Division officers oversee the weekly inmate jail visitation program, make prisoner transports to and from out of county agencies, and work in various capacities inside the jail.
