The Coon Rapids Police Reserve unit has been active since Nov. 20, 1962.

Police reserve officers assist when extra personnel are needed.

Reserve officers are community volunteers who represent a range of age and career groups. They receive uniforms and special training.

Each year, reserve officers donate hundreds of service hours to the community assisting with traffic control, crowd control and patrol at nearly 50 community events and parades, searching for missing people and other assignments.
