Trainees for this program are only admitted to the class as a sponsored student based upon the recommendation of the Chief or Director of a police agency. Trainees are subject to the rules and regulations of the Oakland Police Academy during the training sessions. The next Reserve Officer training session will be from September 9 - December 5, 2015.
