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.”
