    I am currently going through the process with a department in Illinois which will be left unnamed. My question is, at what point in the process would it be a good time to go on a ride along with the department?

    I would say BEFORE you put in. This gives you a snapshot and may help you decide if it’s the department for you. Heck, some departments actually require applicants to do a ride-along for this very reason.

      I would do it before any oral interview.

        He's right I had to do one for a department, it was one of the steps, but like birdmang said before an oral interview would be beneficial! It helped knowing some information from an actual officer and gives good insight!
