The Town of Scarborough’s Police Department is seeking applicants to serve as Seasonal Reserve Police Officers. Our Reserve Officers assist and serve the community by working with our Police Department to maintain the peace and security of our Town. Reserve Officers wear a Police Department uniform and perform many of the same duties as our Patrol Officers, but on a part-time and seasonal basis. Reserve Officers will receive training to familiarize themselves with police functions and to prepare for assignments. Joining the Public Safety team as a Reserve Officer is an excellent introduction to police work and an opportunity to serve the community. 

Duties shall consist of a number of general police responsibilities necessary to the stability and safety of the community.  Responsibilities may include enforcing traffic laws, directing traffic, issuing citations and warnings, patrolling the community, identifying criminal offenders and criminal activity and, where appropriate, apprehending offenders and participating in subsequent court proceedings. Work may include aiding individuals who are in danger of physical harm; identifying problems that are potentially serious law enforcement or governmental problems; creating and maintaining a feeling of security in the community; promoting and preserving the peace and providing other services on an emergency basis.
