Sharie Souza of the Honolulu Police Department Criminal Investigation Division will answer this week’s questions from a viewer.
Question: What is a ride-along and what do they teach you while you are on a ride-along?
Answer: Anyone who goes on a ride along will get to see what our officers experience on a daily basis. They will ride with a patrol officer and hear the different types of calls for service our officers are sent to throughout the day. It is also a great chance to ask the officer questions you wouldn’t normally have the chance to.
