NOTE: Reserve Deputy Sheriffs currently wear the same patches and uniforms as regular Deputy Sheriffs.
This patch was worn by Reserve Deputy Sheriff's from the early 1980's to 1989. The patch was identical to the regular S/O patch, except that it had the word "RESERVE" embroidered in gold above the State Seal. This increased the overall patch size by approx. 1/2 inch. VARIATION: A sample run of patches with the "RESERVE" in a silver ribbon was produced. This was the same design as the previous Reserve patch, except with a blue twill background. The design was never approved or worn on a uniform.
