The Clare Police Department has utilized a volunteer Reserve Police Officer force since the 1970's. Reserve Officers are required to attend a 28 hour Reserve Officer academy and then pass a field training program. The Reserve Officer division assists the department in special duty assignments, parades and road patrol. The Clare Police Deparment currently has one Police Cadet. This program is offered to anyone age 18-21 who want to begin a career in Law Enforcement. Each Cadet is required to attend the Reserve Academy and pass and field training program. The Cadets are utilized for special functions, peer mentoring and community policing events.
