PREREQUISITES TO JOIN:
The unit operates for the security and safety of events and individuals whenever and wherever Shrine events occur.

A member must like to help people in need.

Any law enforcement, security, or military experience is desirable. Members must be able to follow instructions and make constructive inputs into the situation at hand. Members will receive a copy of the unit by-laws and performance standards.

OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION:
The Provost Marshal Corp is primarily a service organization. We do not announce when we operate but perform our services behind the scene. Our plan is generally to ascertain where our services are needed, and provide them without fanfare. Many times Shriners will not be aware that we have performed many of our services for them.
