As promised, the Richmond Police Department has released its first of five “virtual ride along”videos on YouTube.
For each pictorial video, a local resident tags along on a cop’s shift and snaps photos that can be shared with the rest of us. The hope is the videos will offer more insight into the daily lives of officers, particularly their community interactions.
A description of the first video was provided on RPD’s Facebook page:
Enjoy our first installment of 5 ride alongs with RPD staff as part of the resident ride along project….The focus of our first ride along is human trafficking on Ohio from the perspective of [a] watch commander. Faces have been distorted to protect the identity of those featured. All subjects featured are considered innocent unless found guilty in a court of law.
And here’s the list of next four ride along videos:
• Virtual Ride Along – BRAVO TEAM, Southern District
• Virtual Ride Along – SRO Unit (Schools)
Virtual Ride Along – Southern District, Beat 3
• Virtual Ride Along — Dayshift Watch Commander
