Reserve Organization

This group of highly trained volunteer deputies supplement all aspects of the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office. Reserve deputies are civilian volunteers, men and women trained to assist regular deputies in performing police functions. Our reserve work over 12,000 hours per calendar year offering law enforcement services to this community. We are greatly in debt to them for their services.

2012 Recruit Class


On 11/28/2012 Sheriff Michael Scroggins swears in a new recruit class at the monthly reserve meeting.  The above picture shows the new deputies with their right hands up and repeating the oath that a police officer takes to protect the citizens of the State of Indiana.  These new deputies have passed the first portion of their training and are now moving on to the field training portion where they will be in uniform out with a field training officer and will be taught the essential parts of being a sheriff deputy.  The first portion of their training consisted of several aspects of law enforcement including criminal law, traffic law, juveniles, hazmat, firearms training, evoc, asp, oc, physical tactics and stops training.  Congratulations to the new deputies and we wish them continued success on their way to becoming a Delaware County Sheirff Deputy. 


The new recruits were given a training class on the proper use of an ASP.  The ASP is an expandable baton that is carried by law enforcement as a less lethel option when confronted with a situation where force is needed.  The following are some pictures.





The new deputies were then given a class on OC.  OC is another less lethel option law enforcement officers have on their tool belts.  The training consisted of taking a shot of OC (made up of pepper & water) in the eyes and then clearing a portion of the building.  The following pictures below show how well OC works!
