Ride-Along Program

To provide our residents a greater understanding of the many duties, services, and functions we provide, the City's Ride-Along Program allows private citizens an opportunity to get a close-up view our of police, fire, and public works departments. Ride-alongs help promote positive community relations and are also a great learning tool for individuals interested in police, fire, or public works careers.

Ride-alongs are always subject to staff availability.

Application Process

Only eligible individuals will be considered for participation in the Ride-Along Program. Because of data privacy rights, confidentiality issues, and operational security issues, all applicants must complete a background check prior to being approved. Ride-along requests for minors must be signed by a parent or guardian.

To be considered for a ride-along opportunity, please complete the Ride-Along Application, which includes a data practices rights advisory, a confidentiality agreement, and a waiver of claims/release of liability agreement.

Applications must be turned in by the ride-along candidate in person, or if the candidate is a minor, by both the minor and a parent or legal guardian.
