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 at the FVPD.  You have an opportunity to ride with an 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 Lieutenant Scottie Hinton at dhinton@fuquay-varina.org or call 919-753-1009, or Corporal Dan Look at dlook@fuquay-varina.org or call 919-353-4797.

You must have submitted an application for the position of a police officer to be eligible for the police applicant ride-along program, however, there are other opportunities to participate in the ride-along program through the Citizen's Police Academy, Jr. Police Cadet Program, and other programs.  Contact Captain Gathman to learn more information about these programs at cgathman@fuquay-varina.org or call 919-552-1434.
