MLPD Adds Two New Reserve Officers (News Release)
On Monday, February 3, Mammoth Lakes Town Clerk Jamie Gray swore in two new Reserve Police Officers.
Jake Guido and Kevin Reynolds are the fifth and sixth Reserve Officers to join the MLPD in the past year. Both of them completed Level 3 and Level 2 Academy training at Cerro Coso College. They will be working as Level 2 Reserve Officers. Level 2 Reserves have full peace officer power when on-duty, but only work under the direct supervision of a regular Police Officer.
Police Chief Dan Watson said, “Level 2 Reserves are a real benefit to the Police Department. Although they cannot work alone, they make a police unit a two-man car which means only one unit is required to handle many incidents instead of sending two for officer-safety reasons. Level 2 Reserves expand our ability to handle calls for service and deal with crime and traffic issues.”
