Please read the following statements. Every person going on a ride-along must sign a waiver. You will be asked to sign the waiver at the beginning of your ride-along in the presence of an officer.
I have voluntarily requested to ride as a passenger and observer in a Boise Police Department vehicle that will be operated by official Law Enforcement personnel while performing official duties as a peace officer.
I understand that the activities of the officer I am assigned to ride with may be dangerous, involving possible risk of personal injury and damage or loss of property.
I understand that I am to obey the commands of the officer at all times during the ride-along. I will not take any action that will inhibit the actions of the officer I am assigned to or that will jeopardize the officer’s and/or my safety.
I understand the equipment assigned to an officer and the vehicle in which I will be riding is for the purpose of aiding the officer in performing official duties only. I will not touch, utilize, or adjust any of the equipment.
I agree that I will not take any photographs or video of any crime scenes or evidence while with the officer, nor will I create anything on any personal recording device (such as a smartphone or digital camera) that could be considered a record which would need to be included in any officer’s report.
I agree that I will not post anything regarding my ride-along or any calls to any social media websites of any kind.
I agree that I will not take any photographs of the officer without his or her prior approval.
I understand that failure to abide by the above requirements will result in immediate termination of the ride-along and can prohibit me from being considered for any future ride-alongs.
