Citizen Ride Along

As a citizen of Camillus, you can take advantage of the Camillus Police Department Ride-Along Program. To participate in the Ride-Along program, citizens are required to complete an application and liability waiver form and must successfully complete a background check. Citizens may ask to ride with a specific officer, with an officer on a special assignment, or may request a specific day of the week and shift that works in their schedule. Every effort will be made to accommodate special requests, however special requests may result in a delay in scheduling the ride-along.

You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in a ride-along. Ride-alongs are allowed only once in a 12 month period.

1. All applications must be notarized OR signed in front of a Camillus Police employee.
2. Once accepted in the program, the citizen will be contacted to arrange the ride-along date and time.
