BEMIDJI — Four Bemidji police reserve officers were sworn in on Monday, Aug. 15, during a Bemidji City Council meeting.

Officers sworn in at the meeting included Ryan Binstock, Ben Voller, Hobson Pierre and Noah Hanks. Not in attendance at the event were Corbin Wabasha and Tyler Larsen.

"Reserve officers serve the community in a volunteer capacity," a Bemidji Police Department Facebook post said. "They become extra sets of eyes and ears for our community donating many hours of service to assist the police department in things like foot patrol, extra patrol requests, traffic control, animal control, recovering found property, assisting police officers during accidents and traffic stops and a number of other duties."
