Who Are We?
The Customer Care and Patrol (CAP) Team are downtown ambassadors who assist businesses, tourists, and citizens. The supervisor, as well as patrol members, are trained to promote tourism and safety in the downtown core. CAP team members are responsible for taking on the role of both an ambassador and safety patrolling, which are two integral aspects of the program that are important to the success of the team.
Safety patrollers are accountable for observing and reporting unsafe conditions, crimes, graffiti, and vagrancy around the downtown vicinity, also referring and reporting aggressive panhandlers and homeless to outreach facilities. Our team also assists the RCMP and By-Law with crime prevention strategies and initiatives in a non-aggressive capacity. Contact the safety patrollers at (250)-572-3009.
Ambassadors are the embodiment of hospitality. We greet and welcome both locals and visitors to downtown Kamloops. The team aids tourists by directing them to historical points of interest, key events and activities, local attractions, restaurants, shopping, parking, and accommodations.
The Customer Care and Visitor Information Centre is operated by ambassadors who can help you decide where to go and how to get there or any other assistance you need. Contact the ambassadors at (250)-572-3008.
