Presented to me by Reserve Corps
Lieutenant Ray Eluhow-Retired
4th District Reserve Commander
Metropolitan Police Department
The Washington Metropolitan Police Reserve Corps was established in 1950, to assist the regular force and to be an integral part of the Department. Reserve Corps members may perform the same duties as a regular member of the Department in the course of augmenting or supplementing the activities of the Department. Reserve Corps members may only perform those duties for which they have received competent training and for which they have been certified by authority of the Chief of Police.
Members of the Metropolitan Police Reserve Corps are members of the Department who serve without compensation and who perform a variety of duties with, and in support of, the career Police force.
Reserve Officers are assigned to various units of the Department, and they work to provide a variety of Law Enforcement activities. Many Reserve Officers will be assigned to a Police Service Area (PSA) in one of seven Patrol Districts. Others may work in a specialized unit and will work in support of the Patrol Districts.
Reserve Officers serve the Department in different ways, depending upon individual experience and qualifications and upon the time commitment they are able to make. Some Reserve Officers may work indoors in a Patrol District. Others will work side-by-side with Patrol Officers performing front-line Law Enforcement activities. And others still may work alone, providing Uniform Patrol in their own community as a fully empowered Police Officer who possesses the same equipment and service weapon as career Police Officer
