Keeping the QV BIA safe
This year marks our 5th year of our Surveillance Patrol Program. Over 900 hours of surveillance will be conducted in the QV BIA over the next 5 months.
Here’s everything you ever wanted to know about the Patrol program but were afraid to ask:
What they do:
- Act as community Ambassadors
- Keep watch over the QV BIA
- Help assist visitors to the Vanier Community
- Report observation to proper agencies (police or city)
- Report graffiti found on Merchants buildings
Where do they patrol?
Our 3 main streets: Montreal Rd., McArthur Ave. and Beechwood Ave.
How do they patrol:
We have foot and cycling surveillance patrol teams.
Who are they?
Our Patrol Team are students from the Police Foundation Program at Algonquin College.
