The Auburndale Police Department offers a Ride-Along program as a means for the citizens who are genuinely interested in law enforcement to gain first hand knowledge of a police officer’s daily duties and responsibilities.

For security reasons, a background investigation will be conducted on all persons wanting to participate in the Ride-Along program. The approval process for all Ride-Along applications can take up to 10 days. Denial of any such application is at the discretion of the Auburndale Police Department, and will be made when it is deemed a security risk that may impair or jeopardize police operations.

Proper attire is required while participating in the Ride-Along program. This includes a shirt with a collar, dress slacks, and dress shoes for men. Women should wear slacks and a blouse or modest dress. Jeans, shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, tennis shoes, and sandals are not permitted.

The Neighborhood Search database contains public record information on offenders classified as sexual predators and sexual offenders under Florida law because of a conviction for a sex-related crime. This information is made available to interested citizens to help them educate themselves about the possible presence of such offenders in their local communities. The placement of information about an offender in this database is not intended to indicate that any judgment has been made about the level of risk a particular offender may present to others. This information is made available to assist interested persons in forming their own risk assessments based on the offender’s personal circumstances and conviction history.
