The Tumwater Police Department provides limited opportunities for members of the community to learn about police work first-hand through a ride-along experience. The person riding along must be at least 18 years old or have written permission from parents on a form provided by the department. It is usually required that the rider live, work, or go to school in Tumwater and be at least 16 years of age.  Current applicants or those interested in applying for a Police Officer position are encouraged to ride along.
