Due to the circumstances under COVID-19, the Odessa Police Department has suspended the Ride Along Program until further notice.

Allows members of the public to directly observe police officers performing their duties.
Promotes a better understanding of the challenges, risks and benefits of the Odessa Police Department's role within the community.
Is a safe and exciting way to get to know your Police Department.
