The Idaho Falls Police Department offers ride-alongs with patrol officers for a variety of reasons, including educating community members or potential Idaho Falls police officers about policing in Idaho Falls. Ride-alongs are approved on a case-by-case basis depending on the availability/capacity of patrol officers and a number of other factors. Riders are required to follow rules, guidelines, and all directions given by law enforcement officers during their ride along. Ride-alongs are not guaranteed and are granted at the discretion of the department. If you are interested in participating in a ride-along with an Idaho Falls Police Officer, please submit your information through the form below, carefully reading all sections. An IFPD staff member will be in touch soon.
