Citizen Ride-Along Program
The men and women of the Police Department invite you, the citizens of Pittsburg, to ride-a-long as we patrol our community. As a participant in the program, you will view first-hand the complexities and hazards police officers face. During your ride-a-long, you will accompany officers as they investigate crimes, enforce traffic laws, arrest suspects, settle domestic disputes, and answer a variety of calls for police services.

Due to the sensitive nature of our work, a background check is required on all who wish to participate. Applicants must also complete a liability waiver and agree to follow program policies and procedures. Ride-a-longs will be limited to one ride-a-long every two months. Scheduling will be arranged upon completion of the background investigation and approval.

For more information about this program, please contact Administrative Services at 620-235-0400.
