The Ankeny Police Department has established a community Ride-Along Program to enhance the relationship between the community and its police department. This program is designed to be an educational opportunity for residents and business persons 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 yrs. 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 is 2 p.m. and 10 p.m.
If you are interested in this program please contact Lt. Brian Kroska at (515) 289-5244 to schedule an observation. Participants must pass a background check.
