The sole duty of patrol members is to observe and report concerns to the RCMP or appropriate emergency service group. They watch for community emergency situations, traffic collisions, stolen vehicles, fires, citizens that may require assistance.
Citizen Patrol volunteers are observers and reporters only while on their patrol shift. Patrol members are not expected, nor are they allowed to get directly involved if they observe an offence. In no way would you put yourself into harm’s way as this is the responsibility of the police, fire and ambulance personnel to deal directly with the situation.
