The Reserve Deputy Program was first established in 1981 under Sheriff Sonny Keesee. The Reserve Program of the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office consists of citizens of Lubbock County who hold a Peace Officers license and volunteer their own time. 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.

The Reserve Deputies also have to keep up with their classroom training hours, drivers training, as well as their firearms training to keep their Peace Officers certification active. 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.
