Reserve deputies go through the same type of training as the full time Deputies however Reserve Deputies are citizens that hold regular full time jobs or have retired from their job to volunteer on their own time to serve the citizens of Lubbock County.

At this time there are 20 active Reserve Deputies on the roster for the Lubbock Sheriff's Office. These reserve deputies contribute thousands of hours each year which makes Lubbock County a safer place to live.
