The Loveland Police Department allows citizens to accompany uniformed patrol officers during the course of their assigned duties. This perspective provides the citizens with an opportunity to see police officer work first hand. There is an age restriction for the ride-along but it is subject to the on-duty supervisor’s discretion. The subject must be at least 14 years of age. All riders must sign a waiver and any rider under the age of 18 must have their waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. Riders are limited to two rides per year.
The Ride Along Request Form can be brought in, faxed, or emailed to the Police Department Records Unit (contact information at the top of the form.) Signatures are required on pages 1 and 3 for all riders, and page 4 for riders under age 18. The requested Ride Along Date and Time should be at least 48 hours after the request is submitted. Ride Alongs are scheduled for 2 hours, beginning at 8am, 2:30pm, or 8pm. For more information, please call 970-962-2267.
