Ride Along Program

A ride-along is a great way to learn about police operations. You may accompany an officer on a day, evening, or night shift. Ride-alongs show community the day-to-day challenges facing law enforcement officers. The experience also demonstrates the critical role that dispatchers and other communications personnel play in ensuring community and officer safety.


You must fill out an application to ride along with an officer. Download the Ride-along application and submit via email, or bring to the Police Department during normal business hours at 1000 Telleen Avenue, Erie.
