The Ride Along scheme

Nottinghamshire Police has launched a Ride Along scheme, giving members of the public the opportunity to see how we work, as well as ensuring that what we do as a police service is open to scrutiny and feedback. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to follow our neighbourhood policing teams and response officers as they patrol the beat and attend 999 emergency calls across Nottinghamshire.


During a typical Ride Along you may get a chance to see us:

  • Arrest suspects of crime
  • Respond to 999 calls
  • Perform duties such as Stop and Search
  • Tackle neighbourhood issues and incidents
    Deputy Chief Constable Rachel Barber said: "If you’re interested in learning more about the work that we do and the challenges our officers face on a day-to-day basis, this is a great way for you to find out more. We want to use this as an opportunity to connect with our communities that perhaps haven’t had much contact with us in the past, and bust some myths around how we use powers such as Stop and Search.
    "Our officers will also be more than happy to talk you through what their typical day is like, their experiences as a police officer, and answer any questions you want to ask, so make sure you have some prepared."
    To take part you must be a resident of Nottinghamshire and be at least 18 years old. Applications will be managed by our Citizens in Policing Department, who will work with you to arrange a suitable date and time following our vetting process.
    You can find out more about the scheme and express your interest in taking part on the dedicated Ride Along page on the Nottinghamshire Police website.
