The Lancaster Police Department is open to requests from school or civic organizations to provide tours of our facility. To schedule a tour of the facility please contact the department. 

Police ride along

"Ride along" means to be an official passenger in a patrol vehicle, accompanying a police officer during part of a normal tour of duty. The primary purpose is to provide an opportunity for the individual or community to see first-hand the workings of the law enforcement as it relates to the City of Lancaster. It fosters a better understanding of the challenges, hazards and rewards of a police officer. Particularly useful for Criminal Justice students. If you are at least 18 years of age and would like to participate, please contact the department for further details.
