Police Department, Community Programs
The Longmont Police Department offers a Ride-Along Program to allow citizens
the opportunity to view law enforcement operations from the perspective of
an officer. The program allows individuals 14 years of age or older to participate.
There are certain restrictions, however. If applicants have a questionable
criminal or traffic history or if they pose a potential hazard to the officer,
the public, or themselves, they may be disqualified.
Applications for the Ride-Along Program may be obtained by contacting the
front desk in the lobby of the Police Department at 225 Kimbark Street or
by calling 303 - 651 - 8555. When the completed application is received, a
routine background check is performed by the Police Records Section. Review
of the application is done by a watch commander, who has final discretion
in approving or denying the ride-along. Citizens are limited to one ride-along
every six months; however, some exceptions may be made at the discretion of the watch
Please send completed Ride Along forms to the Longmont Police Department, ATTN: Report Takers Office, 225 Kimbark Street, Longmont, Colorado, 80501.
