At the time of the ride along appointment the patrol sergeant will review his/her expectations and safety precautions with you and ask for your signature of agreement on the form at that time.
Please allow up to two weeks for this process to occur. It is our policy to allow no more than four patrol ride-alongs within a year’s time.
