Police Ride-Along Program

The Ride-Along Program provides an opportunity for college students to experience Law Enforcement functions firsthand. Students 18 years of age or older who are interested in the functions of the Effingham Police Department are invited to file a Ride-Along Request/Waiver of Liability with the Department and, upon approval, may ride with one of the uniform officers on patrol.

Students must be enrolled in a criminal justice program through university or college.
