  • Thanks for the ride along?

    I just had my first ride along and thanked the officer. I was wondering if i should write a short letter to him thanking him or does that sound to kiss-***. Thanks

    Don't send it. I would've found it odd had any of my ride alongs sent me one.

      You really should have left a $20 on the seat when you got out of the squad..

        Occasionally, when I am out of town for a long time, I ride along with a local department. I usually will buy the officer dinner. If I want to put something in writing, I will send it to the head of the agency so that the officer gets something nice in his personnel file.

          If you're compelled to write someone, write to the officer's supervisor indicating how impressed you were with the officer's courtesy and professionalism. Those are always nice little "atta boys" for the personnel file.

              I agree with KAPSFB and DAL regarding a letter.

                I'm with ChiTownDet, lol. A $20 would've been a nice gesture.

                  A short letter to the Supervisor thanking him for the opportunity would be appropriate.

                    Well, it is Chicago. But wouldn't you give the money up front?

                      You'd get dinner out of him up front...

                        Get a SUbway or Chipotle gift card for at least $20. Should last a few dinners. OR better yet....get the officer a cookie bouquet or a frilly, mushy card with a photo of you in "night wear"

                        Seriously....a "thnaks for the ride along" is usually enough, but if you wnat to do something more, do the gift card for "lunches" or send a letter about how professional the officer was.

                        If it was me...i would want the gift card, (or a few cigars...cops dont make that much $$$)..but would never admit it.

                            make sure you spray your perfume all over the letter so the officer can smell you and remember you forever. Also, dont forget to put on your reddest red lipstick and leave a sexy smooch on the top right of the letter!!

                            Seriously letters are lame. Send an "atta boy" to his sergeant so he sticks it in his file. That way next time he screws up and a "aw crap" paper goes in there, hell have a good one to balance it out.

                              One of my department's recruiters always gives his ride outs his card with his work phone and email, so they can call and ask him for more information if needed. Other officers are glad that they made it through the night without having to dump you off at the station. It just depends on how friendly the officer is.
