Northfield reserve officers are adult members of our community who volunteer their time to supplement the duties of our regular police officers.
Reserves assist our regular licensed officers.
Reserve officers do not carry guns, nor are they licensed peace officers. They wear a distinctive uniform from our regular licensed officers.
The reserve unit meets roughly once a month for specific trainings including defensive tactics, first aid, traffic operations, and more.
Reserve officers are required to volunteer 50 event hours throughout the year and are mandated to work during the St. Olaf College Christmas Concert and the Defeat of Jesse James Days.
The reserve unit is directed by reserve coordinator Sergeant Kevin Tussing, Officer Ryan Bollig, Officer Kelly Robinson and Officer Champange Eiklenborg.
There are several reserve unit leadership opportunities under supervision of Sergeant Kevin Tussing.
To apply to be a member of the police reserves, please fill out an application.
