Police Reserve Officers are the little known facet of law enforcement.  Join police expert former police chief Dr. Richard Weinblatt, The Cop Doc, as he and his expert panel discuss the incredible phenomenon of volunteer and part-time law enforcement officers.  The expert panel members are David Rayburn, retired Florida Highway Patrol Auxiliary lieutenant colonel and president of the Volunteer Law Enforcement Officer Alliance (VLEOA), Tom Harrier, chief of the Orange County Sheriff's Office Reserve in Orlando, FL, and Marc Spigel, an Auxiliary Captain with the Framingham, MA, Auxiliary Police.  Unsung law enforcers, known variously as reserve, auxiliary, special, supernumerary, or intermittent (depending on local preferences), these men and women are the ultimate in community policing as they literally put the police in the community and the community in the police.  They amazingly come to the aid of strangers for little or no money at great personal risk and reflect well on their police departments and sheriff's offices.  The Cop Doc and his panel explore who and what they are, how full-time officers view them, as well as the variety of ways that they are screened, trained, certified, deployed, and armed.
