The University of Michigan Police Department provides a ride-along program for students to see how officers operate firsthand. The goal of this program is to breakdown barriers between officers and the public, as well as to increase transparency. We sent a videographer along to learn more.

You can participate in a ride-along by applying on the Department of Public Safety & Securitys website.
