     The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office utilizes the experience and expertise of a small core of dedicated Reserve Deputies. These volunteer law enforcement officers usually have served in the military or law enforcement. Most are either retired or bi-vocational. All must go through the same application process as regular sworn deputies, including formal written applications, background checks, psychological evaluations, firearms qualifications, and more than 1000 hours of training. Once approved, each Reserve Deputy is issued a uniform, badge and gun as well as other necessary equipment. They perform law enforcement duties such as doing office work, community relations, community policing, traffic control and issuing warrants and subpoenas.
