The Shelton Police Department Reserve Unit has proven itself to be a valuable asset to the City.

Many of our full-time Officers started their career as Reserve Officers.
How to Become a Shelton Police Reserve Officer
Come to the Shelton Police Department and pick up an application. Once your application is reviewed you will be notified via a confirmation letter that your application will be on the list, pending the next reserve academy. Once the upcoming reserve academy is reserved you will be contacted for an initial interview and written exercise. You will then be set up for an Oral Board Interview, comprised of officers and citizens. After the interview you will have to complete and pass an extensive background check by our detectives. You will also be required to pass a polygraph and psychological test. Once you have completed those requirements you will be slotted to attend the Reserve Police Academy, unless you have already graduated from a Reserve Academy in the State of Washington. If you have questions pertaining to the program, contact the Reserve Coordinator at (360) 432-5145.
