*** Attention: The Salisbury Police Department has temporarily suspended their departmental rider program. For the time being, we are focusing our efforts on our new recruits to ensure they are our primary focus for the field training officers. We will make an announcement when this suspension has been lifted. ***
The Salisbury Police Department’s ride-along program's purpose is to provide citizens with an opportunity to learn about the department’s goals and missions and the many services we offer. Participation allows citizens to experience firsthand the decision-making processes our officers utilize in addressing the various crime and quality-of-life issues affecting our community. The end result is a more unified partnership between the police department and the public.
This program is designed for participants over 18 years of age, but is available to students at least 16 years of age with parental consent. Prior to riding, citizens will be asked to sign a liability waiver indicating that you agree to all terms and conditions as listed. Failure to abide by the requirements will terminate your riding privileges.
If you are interested in the Ride-A-Long program, contact Lt. Joe Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
