In light of the violence we’ve all noticed in our city this year, it is a great time to get to know your local policemen and women better. They are doing all they can to keep our streets safe, but it’s going to take all of us coming together as a community to make our city truly safe. With that in mind, here’s a freebie that can help you meet local officers and learn quite a bit along the way.
If you are at least 18 years of age and do not have a felon conviction, you can ride along with an IMPD officer during his or her shift for FREE. By riding along and seeing your local police in action, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from them and see what it’s like for those who protect our streets. Of course, if you have a felony conviction, chances are you’ve already seen one or more of these officers in action, but the experience may not have been as enjoyable for you.
On a more serious note, if this sounds like something you would be interested in, call your nearest IMPD district HQ and schedule a FREE ride-along. Since not many people likely know about this opportunity, you probably won’t have that long of a wait before you’re in the front seat of a local police car.
