Memphis Police Department Reserve
In Memphis, the police reserve officers go through the police academy just like the regular officers. We go to a 40-hour in-service training class every year, and qualify with our pistols twice a year. We work the same assignments as any regular officer.
I graduated from the Memphis Police Department Training Academy in 1972. I retired from the MPD reserve in 2013 after 41 years of service. I spent many years in squad cars, mostly on one-man patrol in south Memphis.
I worked several years in the General Investigation Bureau and the Felony Response Bureau, doing preliminary field investigations of homicides and other violent crimes. For the last few years, I just worked special events and visited with the tourists.
