The Lebanon Police Department's Ride-Along Program allows citizens to voluntarily accompany officers, and to observe law enforcement activities to better understand the problems of policing. The observer may request to ride in any area at any time or with a particular officer. If convenient to the department and conditions permit, permission may be granted.
The department's community-oriented policing goals include a commitment to work with the community to solve neighborhood problems and to operate an open, accessible, and accountable agency. The Ride-Along Program is consistent with these goals. Please remember that safety of law enforcement personnel shall be the primary concern.
Ride-Along Request: Persons wishing to ride with an officer shall fill out only the top section on the accompanying application. The second section will be used internally to finalize and schedule an approved ride-along. The third section is a liability waiver to be completed by you at the time of your ride-along, but not before.
Completed Ride-Along Forms should be e-mailed or turned into Dispatch at the police station at least five working days before the desired ride-along date.
