You can also request a ride-along to learn more about the challenges, risks and rewards of the police officer’s role in our community. Ride-alongs are not guaranteed and are based upon availability of officers. They can be subject to change due to public safety needs. In order to take a ride-along, you must meet the eligibility criteria outlined on the ride-along request form, which you will be asked to complete beforehand. If you are interested in this program, please email the Program Manager.
