The Hinds County Sheriff's Reserves is a non-profit 501(c)(3)organization. The Reserve Unit is very active in Hinds County and is comprised of Reserve Deputies who work on a volunteer basis under the auspices of Sheriff Tyrone Lewis and under the direction of Commander Wendell Watts.
Reserve deputies supplement the law enforcement manpower of the Hinds County Sheriff's Department. Reserve deputies are professionally trained and duly sworn law enforcement personnel and are certified officers pursuant to the State of Mississippi's Board of Minimum Standards & Training for Law Enforcement Officers. In most cases, reserve deputies are assigned to the same duties of full-time deputies. Since reserve deputies have the same powers of arrest as full-time deputies, they are required by law to meet the same hiring, background, medical and psychological standards as full-time deputies.
As a non-profit (501)(c)(3) tax exempt organization we welcome your donations which enable the reserves to purchase much needed equipment and tend to other business related activities enabling us to serve the citizens of Hinds County.
