The Lake County Sheriff's Office Reserve Deputy Unit, which augments the sheriff's office in times of natural and man-made emergencies, is accepting applications. The unit works directly under the direction of the highway patrol division and also assists municipal police agencies. Reserve deputies can be called upon to provide traffic and crowd control, search for missing persons, and participate in crime scene evidence searches. A reserve deputy attends a 120-hour training course over a five-month period. Classes are held one weeknight each week and up to two Saturdays a month. Classroom and hands-on instruction are required. Applications can be printed from www.reservedeputy.com or picked up at 1301 N. Milwaukee Ave. Libertyville. The application deadline is Oct. 31. Contact Lt. Ryan McCormack at RMcCormack@lakecountyil.gov or (847) 377-7020.
