<p><strong>Modesto, CA </strong>&ndash; Have ever wanted to ride in the front seat of a patrol car or fire truck?&nbsp; Are you interested in what type of crime or activity may be happening in your neighborhood?&nbsp; Are you looking to pursue a career in public safety?&nbsp; This Friday get a glimpse into the realities of life in public safety while you take a &ldquo;virtual ride-along&rdquo; with the Modesto Police Department, Modesto Fire Department, Stanislaus County Sheriff&rsquo;s Office, Stanislaus Consolidated Fire, Ceres Police Department and Turlock Fire Department.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
