The Douglas County Sheriff's Office offers ride-a-longs with the Uniform Patrol Division to offer citizens an opportunity to observe the day-to-day duties of a deputy.  Anyone interested will be required to complete a Ride-A-Long Program Application downloadable at the bottom of this page.  

Applicants must be at least sixteen years of age, and those under the age of eighteen will need parental or guardian consent.  A routine background check will be performed on all applicants prior to the ride-a-long.  Applicants may be disqualified due to questionable criminal history entries.

Citizens are generally limited to one 4-hour ride-a-long per calendar year. Following completion and approval of a Ride-A-Long Program Application, a patrol supervisor will contact the applicant to schedule the ride-a-long.

For additional information contact:  Douglas County Sheriffs Office Uniform Patrol Division at (402) 444-3554.
