Police Ride-Along Program

The Police Ride-Along program allows residents to accompany officers during their tour of duty in a police vehicle.  This public education program gives residents a better understanding of police operations.  The Ride-Along Program serves as a mechanism for community members to personally observe patrol operations and enhance transparency between police and members of the community.  If you are interested in a ride-along, please  review the guidelines for participants and click Ride-Along Form to access the application. 

Please review the guidelines, complete the fillable from,  print and sign the waiver of release, and return the completed document to the Riverdale Park Police Department located at 5004 Queensbury Road Riverdale Park, MD 20737.

All ride-along requests shall be submitted at least five (5) days before a requested ride-along date.  Please note, completing the requested form does not guarantee that your ride-along request will be approved.
