About Foot Patrol
Foot Patrol is a volunteer-run centre that provides patrols and safe walks on campus and in the surrounding Ottawa community, as well as event safety support through the Guardian program. Foot Patrollers work in pairs and all volunteers are required to pass a criminal record check and complete sensitivity, first aid and safety training. Foot Patrol also provides safety seminars, promotes safety awareness and conducts annual safety audits of campus.
