The USC Foot Patrol’s Guardian Program can attend larger (usually off-campus) events to provide support and direction to attendees, help ensure all individuals return home safely event, and offer planning, organizational, and safety related advice to event organizers if desired (we’ve been to a lot of events, we can advise on what works/doesn’t).
Guardian Program team members are selected from USC volunteers who have shown the greatest degree of commitment, responsibility, and ability to remain focused in stressful situations. Guardian teams can be requested to wear professional or casual dress and all Guardian Program volunteers are Standard First Aid and CPR/AED C trained. Please note that Foot Patrol Guardian teams are not to be used to replace security or a dedicated medical first responder team and will not physically intervene in confrontational situations.
A Guardian Program event team can be booked without charge by organizers of any event involving Carleton University students (it does not need to be an official event occurring through Carleton University). The event does not need to occur during our operational hours. We request that organizers contact us a week in advance to book an event team. We will do our best to accommodate requests on shorter notice but cannot guarantee our attendance.
Please note that regular USC Foot Patrol teams can also be booked to attend or drop by smaller (usually on-campus) events to offer safe walks and/or information on the USC, as requested by event organizers.
