  • Follow Up after Ride Along

    I've applied with my local Sheriff's Department. I've completed the written and the physical fitness tests. I've also completed a face-to-face interview with two of the Captains and now they are working on my background check. Friday, I went on a ride along. The ride along was great and I heard the Deputy tell his Sgt. that I asked all the right questions, took notes, and was very interested in getting hired. Awesome!

    My question is, do I follow up? I know what a pain it is for a deputy to clean out the passenger seat of the car to allow a citizen to ride with him all day.

    Do I follow up with the individual deputy via email or his Sgt or the admin/hiring Sgt?

    Follow up for what? Maybe drop them a thank you email or something if that is what your thinking. If your following up about whether you are getting the job, just be patient, if they started the BI you should hear something shortly. I would give it a couple weeks before inquiring about your status, just my opinion.

      Yes a "Thank You" email or something. Not an inquiry about the job. I know I have to just wait on that. I know there is nothing I can do to speed up the process.

      Just trying to be courteous.

          Did you thank the Deputy after the ride a long? If you did. Then leave it at that.
