The Ankeny Police Department has established a community Ride-Along Program to enhance the relationship between the community and the Ankeny Police Department. This program is designed to be an educational opportunity for residents or business owners to view first hand police practices, procedures and activity within our community.
This program is open to Ankeny residents or business owners that are at least 18 years of age. For a student to participate in the program they must have the written approval of their parent or guardian and be at least 16 yrs old.
The rides usually last 2-4 hours and many observers prefer the busiest times of the day, which are 2 p.m. and 10 p.m.
If you are interested in this program please contact Sgt. Corey Schneden at 515-289-5257 to schedule an observation. Participants must pass a background check.
