Function


The primary function of the Madison Heights Police Reserve Unit is to aid and assist the sworn certified Police Officers of the City. This has been accomplished by agreeing to handle certain functions and responsibilities. Assuming these responsibilities gives the Police Department more time to do their patrol duties.

The Unit falls under the direction of the Auxiliary Services Sergeant, a sworn member of the Madison Heights Police Department.
