The Pella Police Reserve Organization currently has six reserve officers. It is not uncommon for a reserve officer to advance to a full-time police position. Reserve Police Officers assisted the police department by volunteering over 1,882 hours during the past year. Pella Police Reserve Officers regularly work events at Pella High School, Pella Christian High School, and Central College to provide security. Reserve Police Officers also assist with Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau sTEP projects, search warrants, surveillance projects, special events, and supplemental patrol to help cover the city during peak times.
The Pella Police Reserve organization is always looking for good candidates with interest in law enforcement, especially those motivated to keep Pella a safe place to live.
