Ride-Along Program

The purpose of the Kitty Hawk Police Department Ride-Along Program is to allow residents or visitors, interested in a career in law enforcement, the opportunity to accompany officers during their tour of duty.  This experience provides the ride-along an opportunity to observe the duties and responsibilities of a police officer as well as, obtain a better understanding of the law enforcement community.

All applicants must fill out a Ride-Along Application, be 18 years of age or older, and sign a Liability Release Waiver.  All applicants must successfully pass a background investigation prior to riding with a police officer.  

The background investigation will include, but is not limited to, the following inquiries:

  • The Kitty Hawk Police Department Records Check
