The program is built around a community-based model of safety and revolves around three core areas:
Customer Service – approachable, interactive, and compassionate patrollers who respond quickly to your needs. Patrollers on duty will have non-violent crisis intervention and mental illness training, and minimum one person on shift will have First Aid and Naloxone training.
Relationship Building – with neighbourhood businesses, organizations, and residents. Patrollers will work to establish collaborative relationships with service providers and agencies who provide peer-led and place-based services and resources.
Education – promote awareness of how area businesses and residents can enhance their own safety.
