The police station lobby is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the ride-along program has been suspended. We anticipate the program will resume again in early May.
If you are interested in the opportunity to ride along with a police officer during a regular patrol shift, please fill out a Ride Along Application (PDF). You will be asked to sign a waiver and will undergo a background check before permission is granted.
Completed applications must be delivered in person to the Bainbridge Island Police Department, 625 Winslow Way East, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110 unless you are applying for employment with the City of Bainbridge Island in which case you provide them to the Civil Service Secretary/Chief Examiner.
