What do I need to know about the Reserve Academy?
- All Puyallup Police Reserves attend the reserve academy conducted by the Fife Police Department. This academy runs from January to May each year.
- The academy consists of approximately 330 hours of police related training. Since most reserve officers have full time jobs the classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 - 10 p.m. and all day on Saturdays from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
- Attendance is required to graduate and receive a Reserve Police Officer Commission in the State of Washington. Students must be able to pass all written tests include the State Exam, and emergency vehicle operations course, firearms qualifications, defensive tactics, and practical mock scene scenarios.
