It’s time to begin your course project in which you will research a law enforcement agency. You will complete this part of the project in the following three steps.

Step One: Research and select a law enforcement agency that you will research throughout the course.

  • This project will help you learn more about the specific functions and duties of a law enforcement agency.
  • Take some time to research and identify a law enforcement agency that is of interest to you.
  • Select a law enforcement agency/department in your area and one that you can either schedule a ride-along or interview. Examples include your local police department, sheriff’s office, state police/state patrol, state DNR, or a federal agency with an office near you.
  • You should select a department that you have an interest in learning more about, that you may wish to work for in the future, or that that you have a contact.
  • Look for an organizational chart, Annual Report, and other units of the department as you will need this information for your later assignments.
  • Part of the project is to also complete a ride-along/interview with a law enforcement officer from the agency you selected.

Step Two: Contact the law enforcement agency that you want to conduct a ride-along/interview with.

  • When you call the agency, explain that you are respectfully requesting a ride-along or interview. Keep in mind that not all agencies provide ride-along opportunities.
  • Be prepared to complete a written application for a ride-along and also a background check. Most law enforcement agencies require a background check for ride-alongs. Also, it can take several weeks to schedule the ride-along interview, so this is why one of your requirements in Module 01 is to contact the law enforcement agency and to schedule the ride-along/interview.

Step Three: Submit a paper that paper that includes the following requirements:

  • The law enforcement agency that student has chosen to research for the course project.
  • Why student selected specific agency and what student hopes to learn from the project and ride-along/interview.
  • What efforts student has made to contact agency to schedule ride-along/interview and what the agency’s response was.
