  • You may schedule 1 ride-along (per quarter), anytime between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, 7 days a week. (No overnight stays)
  • Individuals seeking to ride for specific objectives: internships, job shadowing, etc., may be granted an extended ride-along schedule upon approval of the Operations Chief.
