Apply to observe the work of the police

If you are a resident of Avon and Somerset, you can fill in this form to apply to follow the police for a shift to observe the work we do (the Ride Along Scheme).

Your request will be subject to criminal and intelligence checks. Having an offence on record will not automatically exclude you from taking part.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary reserves the right to refuse participation in this scheme and to terminate the Ride Along, if it is necessary for the officer or member of staff to carry out their work effectively, efficiently and safely.

Due to the high demand, only one application per person within any 12 months period can be accepted.

This form takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
