The Columbia Heights Reserve Unit is a volunteer organization committed to assisting the Police Department and the Columbia Heights-Hilltop communities with a wide variety of tasks and assignments. New reservists are schooled through the Anoka County Police Reserve Academy, including training on police skills, tactics and other duties. The Reserve Unit has been in existence for approximately 50 years.
The Columbia Heights Reserve Unit is made up of men and women who volunteer their time and effort to help make Columbia Heights a safe and enjoyable community in which to live, work and play.
The Reserve Officers assist the Columbia Heights Police Department with both police related and civic duties.
The Police Reserve Unit is currently looking for adult volunteers 18 years old or older. It is not only an excellent opportunity of students who are pursuing law enforcement as a career, but for any citizen who is interested in volunteering to help the Police department. If you want a fun, challenging and rewarding way to give back to your community, become a Reserve Officer. All training, uniforms and equipment is provided by the Columbia Heights Police Department.
