This exciting program, where citizens can actually spend time with an officer during their working day, was started in 1969. In the beginning only one night a week was available. Today, any day or shift is available for adults, depending on demand and staffing.
Minors must have signed parental permission and may participate between 4:00 PM and 12:00 AM, although their parent may specify an earlier completion time. All participants will be required to sign a release of liability form.
A normal Ride-Along consists of up to 6 hours and will include a station tour as well as a ride-along with an officer on his or her beat. A citizen may request a specific officer, however this may be limited by assignment or at the discretion of the Chief of Police.
If you are interested in a Ride-Along contact the department at (918)762-3166, or email any officer of your choice.
