Ever wanted to know more about what the police do? The Ride Along scheme is an opportunity to gain a real insight into our work, which goes on 24/7, and speak to officers and staff about what goes on in your neighbourhood.
You may be interested in joining an officer on the beat or seeing exactly what happens when we get a 999 call by experiencing the busy environment of our call centre.
Hundreds of people have taken the chance to have a closer look at the work we do, as part of the scheme. If you take part, we hope you find it informative and enjoyable.
