    saw these guys in impalas a few times with complete graphics regular license plates.

    with red and blues and the side door saying special deputy. could it be Pinkerton government services ? has to be a security company.

    they where on 169 in Champlain every time I see them they drive from some where in anoka county to HP county.

    wonder if its private community security officers.
    if so there company would have to have a permit for such lights.

    these guys are for sure security of some type.
    there not part of any law enforcement agency.

    We have them now. We have been carrying then for about 2 weeks and have had 2 incidents where they were pulled on people, but have not had to actually fire them yet (thankfully). I'm sure the first person to fire theirs, will be under the Hubble Telescope and scrutinized to no end by administration... But, the "TaserCam" video from the 2 incidents look solid, backing the officers decission to draw them.

    All current officers need to be certified prior to initial deployment. After that, anyone that gets hired will just have Taser cert. as part of their defensive tactics week of training... All officers go through six (6) weeks of training prior to being in uniform on their own. One week is defensive tactics, usually the forth or fifth.

    These guys have like a 3 month hiring process, they're all government employees.

    The thing that throws me off is the plates. I would have expected government plates if it was an HCSO vehicle or any other county for that matter.

    Yeah, the plate thing is kinda weird... As for the Tasers, the last class goes through on Wednesday (no deployment until all officers are certified), then we are supposed to have full deployment the 14th, but the other day at shift bid, it sounded like our inventory of Tasers might not be here yet. So, I still stand by the feeling of "I'll believe it when it's attached to my hip."

    I'm guessing it was one of the local funeral escort companies. They drive similar looking cars, but I thought they said protective agent on the door badge.

    Special Deputy on hwy 169 in mn

    Do this on you day off if you see him. Call the State Police and report and sit back and watch . Not saying this guy is fake but afew years ago we had a blue light rapist He pull women over and rape them. It got to point women had to be pulled over by 2 marked units and be on the phone with 911. If it strikes you as odd then something aint right.

    Considering that government vehicles, by statue, don't even need plates... That's kinda funny.

    Also, keep in mind, I don't think the word Deputy is reserved. Sheriff is, by statue, but Deputy is not. So, it could be anyone.

    Yes, but they don't have squad graphics that say "Special Deputy" on them. And, we still don't even know what county he saw them in...

But, HCSO does not have any division called "Special Deputies" that I've ever heard of.


    The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office Water Patrol Unit is accepting applications from motivated men and women age 21 and older who want to help keep the peace as volunteer special deputies.

    Water Patrol special deputies help patrol and respond to public safety events on Hennepin County’s 48 square miles of water, including 104 lakes and three rivers.

    A typical shift may include issuing a speeding citation to a boater or snowmobile operator; responding to a drowning, medical emergency or accident; locating and removing a hazard to navigation from a waterway; or giving a presentation on boat or snowmobile safety to community members.

    Sheriff’s Water Patrol special deputies are trainees during their first year of service. Then, after officially being sworn in, they are required to work an eight-hour shift every other Saturday or Sunday and attend monthly, three-hour training sessions.

    To be considered for this volunteer position, you must be a U.S. citizen age 21 or older, have a good driving record and be willing to submit to a criminal background check. Applicants also must pass a pre-employment physical, psychological examination and swim test.

    Water Patrol applications may be obtained by calling 952-471-1316 or visiting www.waterpatrol.org.

    Special Deputies is what they call their volunteers. There are worse ways to spend a summer day then cruising in a boat out on Lake Minnetonka!

    Hennepin County utilizes special deputies. They are non sworn reserve type positions. It is good experience and can help someone get a sworn position if that is their aim. I know they do water patrol, but it would not surprise me if they did parks and trails stuff also.
