Reserve Unit – Promotions

Patrol car

The Reserve Unit has an internal ranking structure identical to the full-time police department. The full-time San Jose Police Duty Manual grants the reserve police rank the same authority as a full-time San Jose Police Officer rank to insure a complete and smooth operation of the department. It allows the Level One Reserve Police Officers the opportunity to be promoted within the Reserve Unit to Police Sergeant, Police Lieutenant, Police Captain, Police Deputy Chief, and the Reserve Chief of Police.
