Ride-Along Program

The Avenal Police Department encourages community involvement in the law enforcement process and allows interested citizens and students to ride as passenger observers with patrol officers.

All persons wishing to participate in the Ride-Along Program must be at least 18 years of age and must have no warrants outstanding for their arrest.  The signature of a parent or guardian allows Explorer Cadets under the age of 18 years of age to participate.

Applicants shall apply at least two weeks in advance of the ride-along date for records checks to be completed and scheduling accomodations. If you have any questions, please contact us at 559-386-4444.
