Reserve Officers receive police training and are called to assist regular officers. Reserve duties may include assisting with investigations, surveillance, execution of search warrants, emergency call outs, prisoner transports, vacation home checks, and arrests.

The Newberg-Dundee Police Department K9 Unit is comprised of two canine handlers and a supervisor. Senior Officer S. Schoening's K9 partner, Arko, is a patrol dog trained to locate suspects, along with clearing buildings and vehicles. The department is currently in the process of acquiring and training a new narcotics dog.
The K9 Unit was started in 2003 with the purchase of K9 Akay. Akay was retired in July of 2010 due to medical issues. Sadly, Akay passed away October of 2011. Akay was credited with over 50 suspect captures and finding 5 hidden articles of evidentiary value.
With ingenuity and volunteer work the Newberg-Dundee Police Department converted a 1999 retired Newberg Fire Department rescue unit into a mobile incident command vehicle.
