RIDE ALONG

The Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office offers the community a chance to ride along with a deputy on patrol because we believe it helps people to better understand our work. Any adult over 18 years of age may qualify. Please note that a person may only ride along once every 6 months so that we may accommodate as many people as possible.

The Ride Along Program

The role of the Ride Along Program is to enhance public awareness of the job duties of our uniformed patrol deputies. Citizens can begin a ride along at one of 3 shifts below.

  • Day Shift- 6:00am to 5:30pm

  • Evening- 2:00pm to 1:30am

  • Midnights- 8:00pm to 7:30am

Appropriate Attire and Meals   

Please wear casual business attire, i.e. dockers, khakis, dress shirt or blouse etc. We do not allow riders to wear denim jeans, shorts, t-shirts or opened toe shoes. If you are not properly dressed, you will not be allowed to go on your scheduled ride. You should also bring money for a meal or bring a sack lunch.

If you are interested in scheduling a ride or have any other questions about this program call Lt. Arrend Hoopes at (540) 507-7190, Monday through Friday.
