Ride-a-long form

The Alliance Police Department wants our citizens to understand what we do better. One method we use to do that is by allowing persons to ride-a-long with our patrol officers while they conduct their routine patrol duties and answer calls for service. If you would like to go on a ride-a-long, please complete this form and you will be contacted by a member of the department at our earliest convenience.

You will be required to submit to a small background check and you will have to sign a waiver of liability.

The Alliance Police Department reserves the right to refuse ride-a-longs for any reason.

Please come to the station for your ride-a-long in comfortable clothes. Protective vests will be available upon request. No firearms/weapons are permitted unless you are a sworn Ohio Peace Officer.

No photography equipment permitted.

Please enter the best days of the week for you to ride-a-long.

Please enter the patrol shift you prefer.
7:30am to 3:30pm, 3:30pm to 11:30pm, 11:30pm to 7:30am

Please enter the officer you prefer to ride with if you have a preference. We will try to comply with your request but may not be able to.

If you have any other comments please place them here.
