Ride Along Program

The goal of the Ride Along Program is to acquaint Westminster residents and business owners with their Police Department in a continuing effort to promote community/police understanding and cooperation. The minimum age for the program is 16. A parent or guardian of minors under the age of 18 must sign a parental release form.

There are currently eight patrol teams and two traffic teams from which an applicant can request a ride along. All rides are scheduled for four hours. Please see the Ride Along application for team schedules and limitations regarding scheduling.

If you are interested in the Ride Along Program, and live or own a business in Westminster, you must fill out an application and read the program rules. If you have any questions, contact the secretary of Patrol, Traffic and Special Operations at 303-658-4281.
