People in CostumesThe New Brighton Department of Public Safety has a variety of roles individuals of all ages can participate in to help us carry out our mission in the City of New Brighton.

  1. Police Reserves

The Police Reserve Unit consists of volunteers from the community and various organizations with a desire to help improve the community.

Each member of the Reserve Unit receives training in defensive tactics, aerosol subject restraints, impact weapons, radio use, patrol tactics, and traffic direction. They also receive uniforms and all required equipment provided free of charge by the department.

Reserve Officers who satisfactorily complete the required training are entrusted with a marked patrol vehicle to assist licensed Police Officers in conducting their duties.

Contact Officer Ian Craig for further information.
