Seven reserve deputies sworn in

STAFF REPORT

The Huntington County Sheriff’s Department swore in seven new Reserve Deputies on Wednesday.

The new officers were Adam D. Spafford, James A. Morris Jr., Logan G. Boyer, Grace A. Bolinger, Joseph A. Dyar, Charles A. Bowling, and Jarrod E. Davenriner.

All seven officers underwent an application process which included a written test, physical agility training, and a background investigation. They also completed 40 hours of pre-basic training which included topics of criminal law, traffic law, policies and procedures, department SOP, emergency driving, firearms, mace and taser training.

The reserve deputies will ride along with full time officers and be evaluated on their interaction with the public, in addition to how well they follow the department’s regulations. They must dedicate 16 hours of work each month, and other than a $250 yearly uniform allowance by the county, they will perform their job for free.

Sheriff Newton swore in all seven of the new reserve deputies at a ceremony on Wednesday, Sept. 4.

“It takes a true servants heart to do this type of work in today’s society,” said Newton. “I am honored that they have chose this profession and they are beginning it with our department, I look forward to seeing where they go from here.”
