Ride Along Program
Interested in getting a first-hand look at what the Sheriff’s Office does?
The Benton County Sheriff’s Office offers the opportunity for citizens to observe Deputies in action through its Citizen Observation or "Ride Along" program. Interested individuals may apply to observe a Patrol Deputy, Corrections Deputy, or Parole and Probation Officer as they do their jobs.
Observations are limited to one per year. Approval to participate in the program and assignment of a Deputy is based on operational considerations. Juveniles must be at least 16-years-old and have their parent or guardian's permission to participate.
