The Eden Prairie Police Department blog provides an opportunity for the public to learn more about the people who work there — their stories, their lives, their work in Eden Prairie and their thoughts on topics from driving to dogs.
Welcome Reserve Officer Korus
Last Thursday night the EPPD’s newest Reserve Officer graduated from a six-week Reserve School hosted by the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office. Reserve Michael Korus received instruction in a number of subjects including crime scenes, Police K-9, Water Patrol, officer safety and law enforcement organization.
New Reserve Officers also attend traffic directing school and first-aid, CPR and AED certification classes. In addition Eden Prairie Reserves must complete a monthly department-specific training and complete a training manual.
Reserves are volunteer members of the community who assist officers with emergencies, community events and other special details. The Reserve Unit is currently recruiting new members. If you are interested in joining this dedicated group of volunteers, please fill out the application located in the Police Department Volunteer Opportunities section of our website.
Congratulations and welcome Reserve Officer Korus!
