The Program

The Ride Along Program is currently OPEN.


The Ride Along Program is something that's always been a part of most government agencies. It offers potential recruits the chance to experience first hand what it's like to be part of the department before making any commitments to joining and is therefore ideal if you're unsure about your potential career path. Once accepted into the Ride Along Program, you'll be able to join patrols with a Deputy Sheriff or above for up to one month.

There are, however, exceptions to this time-frame. Silentium, San Andreas State Courts and the Red County Fire Department, once applied you, will be able to request a ride along whenever you like, should you already have been accepted.



Requirements

Before applying, you must ensure you meet the following requirements:
Must have a clean record, fines may be discounted at the discretion of the application reviewer.
Must be above the age of 21.
Must be willing to abide to the below rules and regulations.

If any of these requirements are not met, your application will be denied without question.


Rules & Regulations

Both Deputies and the Ride Along alike have set rules and regulations that must be adhered to at all times. For the Deputy, failure to abide to these rules will result in departmental punishments. For the Ride Along, going against the rules will result in your access being revoked.

Rules for the Ride Along:
Stay in the front seat of the cruiser at all times unless otherwise instructed.
Follow all given instructions by the Deputy.
Any weapons should be left at home.
If the Ridealongee is unable to attend the scheduled ride-along, he/she must notify the
Station Watch Deputy as soon as possible.
Ridealong's must wear appropriate, safe, and conservative attire for the ride-along session (dress or dress-casual shoes, pants, shirts, blouses, and jackets). Not permitted are: denim jeans; t-shirts; shorts; dresses and skirts; clothing that does not cover appropriate areas of the body; clothing that contains graphics, pictures or slogans; hats; high-heeled or open-toed shoes; and sandals. The appropriateness of attire is up to the discretion of the on-duty Supervisor.
Observers must wear and prominently display an “observer” badge. The badge will be issued when the observer reports for the ride-along session. Observers must bring photo identification (such as a driver’s license), which will be exchanged for the Observer ID badge at the beginning of the ride-along session. Upon completion of the ride-along session, the observer’s identification will be returned.
Observers shall not leave the radio car while at the scene of any police activity without the permission of the supervising deputy.
Observers shall not converse with detainees, suspects, prisoners, witnesses, victims,and/or other parties contacted during the course of the ride-along unless directed or requested to do so by the supervising deputy.
Observers shall not interfere with the deputy’s activities at any time. Questions regarding procedures and activities are highly encouraged; however; please wait until an appropriate time to ask these questions.


Rules for the Deputy:
You must be at least Deputy Sheriff to take a Ride Along.
You must frisk your Ride Along prior to starting the shift.
Should you be called to a shots fired, you must leave your Ride Along at a safe place before responding. Alternatively, you may respond but you must not be amongst the first responders.
Your Ride Along's safety is paramount at all times. They are not trained law enforcement personnel, therefore they are not trained to deal with high risk and/or stressful situations. You are responsible for your ride-along's well being. Use extreme caution when responding to scenes while having a RA with you.
You may take a maximum of one Ride Along and cannot partner with another Deputy.

UPDATE


The Ride Along Program is currently not accepting new applicants as we are in the process of conducting live academies. We will advertise when this service is returning. For all current successful applicants, please note that due to this, you may not be able to go out on ride along's as we will prioritise academy students.
