Police Reserves

The 16-person Waseca Police Reserve Unit is a volunteer organization that has been formed to provide trained personnel to augment the Waseca Police Department.

The Waseca Police Reserves shall provide services when called upon in any area within the City of Waseca and outside the boundaries through mutual aid and by permission and direction of the Chief of Police and shall provide services to any political subdivision in the State of Minnesota and beyond by permission of the City Manager.

The Police Reserve Officers have volunteered as much at 2,134 hours in a calendar year. The reserve unit patrols our local parks, business districts, school district buildings, and residential neighborhoods. This added patrol helps reduce property damage and other criminal activity within our community. In addition, the reserve unit assists with parades, dances, early childhood development, high school athletic events, etc.
