Ride-Along With Police Agents

Patrol Car at Night with Lights On
Citizens interested in observing a patrol agent's duties from a unique and close-up perspective may wish to ride along for a portion of an agent’s shift. A ride-along lasts four hours and can be done once every six months. 

To be eligible:

  •  You must live, work or go to school in the city.
  • If you are a current recruit for a police agent position with the Lakewood Police Department, you may also ride along with an agent.
  • You must be at least 16 years old and have permission from your parents. If you are 18 or older, you do not need parental permission.
  • Those interested must provide their name and date of birth for a background check. There is a two-week waiting period to allow the background check to be completed.
