Lorenzo Police Reserve Program
 
Reserves are non-paid citizens that receive extensive training to serve as "supplemental" and support police officers. Lorenzo Police Reserves are never used to replace regular police officers. Rather, reserve officers are used to supplement and assist the patrol and detective duties. In addition, reserves play a key role in all major events in Lorenzo; including parades, 4th of July activities, and sporting events. Reserves are also called upon to assist when unexpected events occur such as flooding, high winds, major crime scenes and disasters.
