Race A Cop Program

The Race-A-Cop program was designed to promote positive interaction between Cops and Kids through some common interests; cars, speed, and music. The Race-A-Cop program works together with the Douglas County School District’s automotive technologies programs to achieve our common goals in educating the students of our county. The objectives for this program are:

  • To provide education relating to responsible driving
  • To provide education relating to the effects and dangers of alcohol and drugs while driving
  • To provide a means of positive interaction between youth and law enforcement through common interests
  • To educate the youth of our community about about the dangers of street racing
  • To provide scholarships to graduating seniors

The Race-A-Cop vehicle is used for such events as the High School Drag Series, “Take it to the Track Night at Bandimere Speedway”, car shows, parades, school events and special events. Deputies and high school students do maintenance and modifications to the car. The car is funded through donations from corporate sponsors, citizens and groups within the County.

To carry out the commitments made to the youth of Douglas County, the Race-A-Cop Program established a scholarship fund. The Sheriff’s Office considers this an investment in the future and believes that their members are helping to provide deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society as a whole.
