I've been a reserve with a large Bay Area PD for 11 years. I did the extended modular academy in Santa Rosa - that's where you go for Tuesday and Thursday evenings and all day Saturday and Sunday. I did level 3/2/1 and it took almost a year. I was single at the time so I didn't have to worry about family. You mentioned you have 3 daughters. You and your family have to realize the time commitment involved, reserves are required by POST to put in a minimum of 16 hours per month to retain their law enforcement status.

In my department, level 3 are issued the same equipment as the regular officers. You can't work patrol but you can work special details like parades, ball games, and community events.

If you're still interested, PM me and I can give you a contact in my department to get you started in the process.
