Salem Police Swear In New Reserve Officers

The Salem Police are excited to have 20 new Reserve Police Officers join our ranks. Congratulations to all!

Becoming a Reserve Police Officer is the first step to joining the Salem Police. Candidates have to pass an extensive process including a written exam, physical fitness test, psychiatric evaluation, and intensive background investigation. Once completing the process a candidate is appointed as a reserve police officer to await an opening with the department. On Monday, May 22 we'll be sending 6 of these reserve officers to the police academy to become full time officers.
