Applicants are encouraged to schedule a ride-along to learn more about the police department and see firsthand what the career entails.
We conduct a criminal history background check to determine the suitability for the ride-along. An authorization for release of your criminal history as well as the ride-along application will need filled out prior to the ride-along. All applicant ride-alongs are scheduled by the Patrol Bureau Commander. To schedule a ride-along, please complete both forms and forward the request to 110 West Spruce St, Dodge City, KS 67801, or fax to (620) 225-8117, or via email.
