Sheriff of Monroe County


PURPOSE: The purpose of this order is to establish policy governing civilian riders with patrol deputies during a shift.


POLICY: It is the Sheriff's policy that civilians who are interested in employment with the Sheriff's Office or its operations should have the opportunity to ride with a patrol deputy to experience what is involved in delivering law enforcement services to the Keys community, with limitations. This is a privilege that the Sheriff extends to the citizens of the community.


PROCEDURE: Civilians who desire to ride during a shift with a patrol deputy may do so, with the following provisions:



In terminating a rider’s privilege the deputy shall contact the on-duty supervisor and advise him/her of the situation.


If the supervisor agrees to terminate the ride along, the rider shall be returned to their vehicle.


The rider will be prohibited from any future riding privileges with the Monroe County Sheriff’s office.
