Reserve Unit


The Administrative Services Division oversees the Reserve Unit.  The Reserve Unit is a professional, all-volunteer organization, which consist of men and women from a wide range of civilian and military backgrounds, from such diverse fields as insurance, law, federal agencies, retail salesmen, and everything in-between.

The Reserve Unit supplements and supports other divisions across the Sheriff’s Office, including Patrol, Criminal Investigations, and Community Services. The Reserve Unit is also tasked with handling a significant number of self-managed assignments and initiatives.

All Reserve Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office must be certified by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE); thus, Reserve Deputies are Texas “peace officers,” have the same powers of arrest as full-time deputies, and are required by law to meet the same hiring, background, medical and psychological standards as full-time deputies.
