During this Ride-Along you will be a silent observer. We request that you do not reveal what you see or hear during the tour that
could be detrimental to the prosecution of any cases arising from the officer’s performance of duty. You may be called upon to be a
witness in a court proceeding and you may be called upon for assistance. The decision for this will rest upon the officer to whom
you are assigned and the circumstances.
All participants are expected to wear businesslike attire or neat casual attire, unless further approval is granted by the Chief of
Police or designee. Participants must be at least 18 years of age unless further approval is granted. Ride-Along participants will
not be permitted to carry weapons of any kind. Cameras or tape recorders are not permitted unless prior approval is granted by the
Chief of Police or designee.
The Richmond Police Department’s Ride-Along Program is a privilege extended to persons who are interested in observing the
police officer, his/her duties and how he/she interacts with the community. The Department reserves the right to refuse participation
in the program.
Conviction of any felony or of a misdemeanor involving moral turpitude may prohibit the applicant from participating in the program.
All other misdemeanor convictions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
