Ride Along Program

About

A ride-along is a great way to learn about sheriff's office operations. You may accompany a deputy on a day, evening or night shift. Ride alongs show citizens 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 citizen and officer safety.

Riders may join deputies as they patrol their districts in the south, north or mountain areas of the county. Ride alongs begin with patrol briefing at headquarters before deputies go out on the road for the duration of their shift.
