20 years as a non-compensated (read "volunteer" Reserve) Deputy Sheriff.
Now in 1998 as an "Active Retired Reserve" Deputy Sheriff after 24 years of service;
The only requirement is 24 hours of training a year to maintain my "Arizona Peace Officer" status.
But, they do twist my arm, "Ouch!" to work some special details throughout the year.
And I am still a member and Webmaster for the MCSO Jeep Posse.
