The Winona Police Department Reserve program is designed as a citizen support system by which volunteers from our community offer their time in support of various police functions. Reserve officers assist the police department with a variety of duties including but not limited to parades, community events, ride alongs and training.

Things we won’t do:

  • Private Parties
  • Private Political Events
  • Private Security

All event requests are subject to approval by the City of Winona and/or the Winona Police Department. We provide services only for events open to the public or for the greater interest of the city.

We strongly recommend that all reserve requests be submitted at least 30 days in advance. This will provide the best chance of filling your requirements. There is no guarantee (implied or otherwise) that any event can be accommodated. It’s all based on the schedules of our volunteer staff. Requests for reserves, submitted less than one week in advance, will usually be denied.

DONATIONS: This program is minimally funded by the City of Winona and relies heavily on donations from the organizations that utilize their services. Donations are not required, but are always appreciated, especially if an organization requests services on a regular basis.
