    The proper attire is usually business casual. Can't go wrong with khakis and a collared shirt. I just went on one Friday and just wore nice, clean jeans and a clean long sleeve shirt, no collar.

          Ask the department you're going for. I know departments that requires a suit and tie, and I know some that are okay with jeans and a collared shirt. We don't do ride alongs, but our interns wear khaki pants, sneakers, and a polo shirt.

            Jeans are you kidding me? I would send you home. At minimum khakis and a golf shirt. No tennis shoes either. I think this would be common sense but guess not. If you want to ask the department what you can wear I would ask is khakis and a golf shirt ok? Im sure it will be. When I was an intern awhile ago thats what I wore and occasionally a button down shirt and dress pants. You represent the department when your in the car with them. Just some food for thought.

              Jees, it's not that big of a deal you're making it out to be. I've let all my riders where a jeans and appropriate tshirt, as long as they are comfortable it doesn't matter. He's riding in the car, not jumping out chasing bad guys and interviewing witnesses. Wear something appropriate and use common sense, don't show up in a speedo and wife beater with flip flops.

                    Why is it that when I make this same observation I get a snotty PM from someone who wasn't even part of the conversation telling me that I'm not the forum police and that I should be correcting matters of bad advice, not rule-breaking?

                    Philip, please tell me that you got one too, otherwise I'm going to think I'm the only one.

                      Ask the BI at that particular agency. Dress code varies. Mine tells you to wear jeans and sneakers....in case you have to run.
