The Red Team

Our Purpose is Public Safety

The first patrols began in early 2013, and the team was officially launched in August 2013. The purpose of these patrols is to reduce crime by making a presence on the streets.This team takes to the streets equipped with everything they might need to respond to a critical incident. During these patrols, used needles, misc paraphernalia, and other unsafe items are removed and destroyed. On an average patrol, it is common for the team to break up fights, contact EMS for distressed persons, and provide first aid. This team will occasionally scout out homeless encampments and provide information to our Humanitarian Services Team. During cold weather, welfare checks are done on people who are at risk of injury or even death. When you see us out on the streets, stop and visit with us!
