Harris County Sheriff's Office
News Release
Friday, January 14, 2011


HOUSTON – Sheriff Adrian Garcia and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) Reserve Command are proud to announce the graduation of 24 reserve cadets – the largest number to graduate in the past 10 years.

The group will be presented with its Basic Peace Officer Certification (BPOC) on Saturday, January 15, 2011 at 2 p.m. at Second Baptist Church West.

The reserve cadets have been in training at the HCSO Academy for 52 weeks.

HCSO Reserves have the same legal authority and responsibilities as regular sheriff’s deputies except that they volunteer their services and are not monetarily compensated. Reserve deputies work in all areas of the HCSO, including patrol, criminal warrants and special operations.

The HCSO Reserve is the largest Sheriff's Reserve Organization in Texas and second nationally only to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. In 2010, HCSO Reserve deputies put in more than 119-thousand work hours and saved Harris County taxpayers $3.5 million.

The monetary savings of the Reserves to Harris County taxpayers total tens of millions of dollars.

More than 200 citizens from all walks of life currently form the HCSO Reserve. They include engineers, mechanics, doctors, corporate managers, and lawyers.

Please join us as we congratulate and welcome this latest group of law enforcement officers who’ll be protecting the citizens of Harris County.
