The Eagle River Police Department honors "ride-along" requests from individuals having a legitimate interest in personally observing police patrol operations.  The purpose of the program is to provide an educational experience to those desiring a career in law enforcement, to promote positive community relations, and to serve as a recruitment tool.

Before a ride-along is approved, a background investigation will be conducted on individuals requesting to ride with an officer.

If you are interested in riding on patrol with a police officer for a portion of a shift please request a copy of the forms needed. Once you receive the forms, please review, complete, & return all of the forms. For a complete set of forms, call (715)479-1941 during business hours.
