The Seymour Police Department plans to implement a reserve officer program in next year to bolster its ranks without adding much cost.

The program also could serve as a feeder system to help the department hire full-time officers to fill vacancies more quickly and put more feet on the street, Chief Bill Abbott said.

Reserve officers serve as unpaid or volunteer manpower, providing police assistance and
