To be eligible to go on ride-alongs with West Bend Police Officers, Cadets must meet certain criteria. First, Cadets must score a 70% or higher on the Ride-Along Knowledge Exam. Second, Cadets must complete eight (8) hours of observation time in the West Bend Police Dispatch Center. Once these prerequisites are met, Cadets can schedule patrol ride-alongs. To schedule a ride-along do the following:
- Log into your Track It Forward account and submit an hour log with the requested date and time. In the "hours" field, indicate the length of time you would like to ride-along. In the "date" field, be sure to use the date of which you'd like to ride-along, and in the "start and end time" field, type in the specific hours you'd like to ride-along.
- Your hour log submission will either be approved or rejected. In either scenario, the Cadet must have prior approval from a Mentor. All observation and ride-along requests must be received AT LEAST 48 hours in advance of the time of requested observation / ride-along.
All below rules apply for any ride-along or dispatch observation
