Go on a Ride-along

Ride-alongs with Springfield Police Officers are currently suspended due to precautions related to COVD-19. 
However, we are still accepting applications. 

The purpose of ride-alongs is to establish a closer relationship and better understanding between police officers and the residents of Springfield. The program provides people with a unique opportunity to observe police officers performing their duties with the hope that they will gain an insight into the complexity of police work.

Complete a ride-along request form and return it by:

  • hand-delivering it to SPD Headquarters (321 E. Chestnut Expy) from 7 a.m.-11 p.m. seven days a week,
  • scanning and emailing it to [email protected] or
  • faxing it to 417-864-1714.
