Mobridge Police Department


Mobridge Police Chief
Ride-Along Coordinator


The Mobridge Police Department allows and encourages the citizens of Mobridge and members of the general public to take the opportunity to ride with a uniformed officer in a marked patrol unit through participation in the MPD Ride-Along Program.

This program is open to citizens and community members under the following guidelines:

  • Ride-alongs must be scheduled at least two (2) days in advance. Reservations may be made by telephone by calling (605) 845-5000, but the requesting individual must also fie a ride-along waiver form. Waivers may be obtained at the Mobridge Police Department or can be downloaded lower on this page.
  • The minimum age for the MPD Ride-Along Program is sixteen (16) years of age. A parent or guardian for minors under eighteen (18) years of age must have their signature witnessed at the police department by department personnel.
  • Riders are expected to be neat and clean in appearance. Clothing should be discreetly selected, as riders will be in full view of the public. Sweatshirts, t-shirts or shorts will not be permitted. Riders should dress in semi-casual wear or in professional wear.
  • Rides may be terminated at any time for persons who are unruly, fail to obey instructions, or distract an officer from duties. Rides may also be terminated at the discretion of the shift supervisor.
  • Normally only one ride-along will be allowed per shift.
  • In order to allow many people the opportunity to participate in the program, each participant is eligible to ride-along only one (1) time within a six (6) month period.
  • Riders may not accompany probationary officers.
  • Exceptions to guidelines may be made at the discretion of the Chief of Police or a designee.
