The AAPD encourages our citizens to ride a long with officers during the performance of their daily duties. The has been one of the more popular services and outreach activities we provide. Ride alongs allow you to “partner" with a police officer and learn how we respond to calls. This experience will allow you to really understand just how unique police service is in the city of Ann Arbor. People interested must go through a basic background check and must be at least 16 years of age. To schedule a ride-along, call the AAPD command desk at 734.794.6921. Please print and complete the ride-along waiver (PDF) and bring it with you to your scheduled appointment. (NOTE: Scheduling for the ride-along program is temporarily on hold due to COVID-19. AAPD looks forward to reinstating this popular program as soon as it is safe to do so. Thank you for your patience.)
