Are you interested in seeing patrol in action? If you'd like to apply to do a ride-along with an officer, you can complete the ride-along application below. Once we have it, we'll review your information and be in touch!
Police Department Ride-Along Request
The purpose of the ride-along program is to allow members of the community to see what police officer encounters while on their regular tour of duty. Currently, the program allows for one ride-along unless you are a graduate of the Cedar Park Citizen’s Police Academy program. By completing this request form, you are consenting to a basic background check including for warrants, and must be both 18 years of age or older and pass that background to be considered. If your application is approved, you must follow the lawful directions of the officer when on patrol. Failure to do so will result in the discontinuation of the ride-along. The officer and any appropriate supervisor may discontinue the ride-along at any time that they deem it in the best interest of the Department. Once this request has been processed, a representative from the Department will contact you to schedule your ride-along.
Dress attire is business casual. No T-shirts, shorts, or open-toed shoes are permitted.
