Connect with Dublin Police

The Dublin Police Department is constantly striving to better its policies, procedures and connection with the Dublin community. 

Schedule a Ride Along 

 A ride along offers the public a way to experience the duties and responsibilities of a Dublin Police officer while they are serving the community. 

Anyone 18 years or older who passes a criminal background check can ride along with a Dublin Police officer during a routine patrol. Riders are strictly limited to observation. People may only ride with a Dublin Police officer once every six months. A four-day notice to the Dublin Police must be given before the department can schedule a ride along. 

Community Liaison Officers 

There are four Community Liaison Officers (CLOs) with the Dublin Police. CLOs work to enhance the department’s outreach and engagement efforts, focused on 

  • finding new ways Dublin Police can help and connect with the community,  
  • being in tune with citizens’ concerns, 
  • being part of national and local dialogue about community-police relations, 
  • and building a reciprocal relationship with community members

Public Records Request Overview

In order to support faster response and better tracking of requests, the City of Dublin uses JustFOIA to collect, respond to and manage public information requests.

Why JustFOIA?

JustFOIA is a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) online application that helps streamline the open records request process for the community and improve efficiencies in getting requested information quickly and accurately.

The application lets community members submit requests for all city records, including police reports. Commonly requested information includes accident reports, copies of resolutions and body-camera video.
