Carlisle Police Bureau Offers Ride Along Program



The Carlisle Police Department has started a new citizen ride-along program aimed
at enhancing public education as it relates to understanding the role and operations
of the department and to improve police-citizen communications and cooperation.
Citizens will now be allowed to do a ride-along with a patrol officer to observe
police operations first hand. This opportunity will hopefully give citizens the
chance to see how officers perform their duties day in and day out, and the high
degree of professionalism with which these officers serve the community.
It is hoped by opening this opportunity to residents, the already good
communication and cooperation between the community and Carlisle Police will
be improved. The Carlisle Police Department is trying to enhance transparency and
the ride-along program is one step in that process.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for us to enhance police-citizen dialogue and
cooperation,” said Mayor Tim Scott. As the people’s elected representative to
oversee the Carlisle Police Department, I am committed to bringing together our
community.
Ride-along request forms are available at the Carlisle Police Department or online
at www.carlislepa.org.
