is the first priority of the PRVWSD Parks Department. To accomplish this mission we will
require Certified Law Enforcement Officers be at certain events dependant

event. Providing adequate security
at special events is the financial responsibility of the event sponsor and
will be determined in a pre-event planning meeting between the event coordinator
and PRVWSD Parks Department staff.
Officers will either be provided by, or approved by the Chief of
the Reservoir Patrol at the expense of the event sponsor.
