A ride-along is an enjoyable way in which the community can inteact with their local poice department and police in other towns, cities and counties outside of their own. It can be educational and fun. It is a great way to tour your city/town and see things you might not have known existed. Socializing with the patrolmen gives you and insight into daily events and common interests.

Some things you might consider before, during and after your ride-along:

Be considerate. If you are in a bad mood, having a bad day, or you don't feel well, reconsider the ride-along, call your police department and notify and officer that you will not be going.

And Thank them.

while on the ride, you might consider asking them questions about their jobs to break up the monotony when not encountering criminal activity.
Write to me for list.

Say you and the officer are having a discussion and you disagree with him or her on that topic. Say OK and drop it. Dont get an attitude. Don't argue. Watch your tone of voice. Not that the officer is always correct, but you might not have all your facts straight either. You can always research his opinion later, and on your next RA discuss it again.

Whether you ar inside or outside the police vehicle, ALWAYS do as the officer instructs. Be curtious. Respond to questions with a "Yes, or No, Officer." Be respectful. They are there to provide you with a safe enviroment and an idea of what they encounter and experience while interacting with people like you and me, everyday.

Never, nerver, never touch the officer anywhere on their body! You might want to get their attention, or include them in joke or difuse a misunderstanding, no, no, no.
Do not stand too close, nor inside their personal space. I know from my personal experience, if strangers stand too close or touch me I have a COW!

A foot outside their extended arms is enough, unless otherwise instructed.

At the end of your ride, say Thank You! Be sincere. Tell them what a great time you had, especially the Momumental Moments.
The one time I went on a RA with an officer, he made me laugh so much, I could have fallen off my chair.
Police officers like to laugh too, and sometimes they have a wickedly good sense of humor.
Go Barling!
