They do patrols and details and get paid for it. They have to do a minimum of 8 hours volunteer (ride along/training) and 8 hours paid a month. They must buy all their own equipment. This is what I remember, it may have changed in the last year.

Since its was changed statewide to age 21 for POs you have to wait till you reach that age.
i heard that was only for full time officers, still having trouble finding out the deal with that, as someone i know is going through the R/I acadamy right now and isnt 21

I think that you can still attend the R/I Academy if you aren't yet 21. Alot of people are only "sponsored" by a town to attend and are not necessarily going to work for the town. If you were to be appointed as a Special in the town, then you might have to be at least 21.
