Holiday Hill Safety Patrols are selected based on their leadership qualities, academic achievement, commitment, sense of responsibility, and positive attitude toward others. Therefore patrols are seen as proven leaders on campus and are expected to uphold these values.
Patrols receive instructions in guidelines and procedures during their training and regular patrol meetings. Duties of all patrols are listed below.
