Police Applicant Ride Along

If you are a police officer applicant with the Fuquay-Varina Police Department, we invite you to participate in a patrol ride along to experience a behind the scenes look of the FVPD.  You have an opportunity to ride with a FVPD officer during the officer's shift to experience a view of our community, our equipment, our employees and the general types of calls received.  The ride along is for a maximum of 4 hours and advanced notice is required in order to complete liability waivers and other required paperwork.

To schedule a ride along, contact Lt. Chris Gathman at cgathman@fuquay-varina.org or call 919-552-1434.

You must have submitted an application for the position of police officer to be eligible for the police applicant ride along program, however, there are other opportunities to participate the ride along program through the Citizen's Police Academy, Jr. Police Cadet Program, and other programs.  Contact Lt. Gathman to learn more.
