The Ride-Along Scheme allows members of our community to experience first-hand, what a police officer on patrol encounters whilst carrying out their duties. It provides valuable insight into what we do and how we go about protecting people, fighting crime and keeping Bedfordshire safe.
Also part of the Home Office Best Use of Stop and Search scheme, The Ride-Along Scheme enables our communities to build a better understanding of the work of police officers in Bedfordshire, including Stop and Searches.
Interested? Please complete an application form and email it to Customer Support or hand it in to your nearest police station.
Requests to ride along with an officer will be accommodated wherever possible. You can choose the area but must attend a safety briefing and follow any instructions given by the officer.
