As many of you know, the idea of a "Whyville Safety Patrol" has been floating
around town for a long long time. Recently, many citizens have asked
about expanding their responsibilities with the 911 reports -- see this week's article
in the Scam Alert!
section by Blueyez89, for example.
Inspired by this, and by the upcoming rush of new citizens we hope to
see in the summer, we at City Hall have decided to begin try-outs for
the first version of the Whyville Safety Patrol!
The rules are: quality quality quality. And a little bit of quantity, but make
sure it's always quality! Specifically, all citizens should submit a 911
report every time they see an incident worthy of City Workers' attention.
But, be sure you don't over do it! Filing a frivolous report will automatically
take you out of the running!
If you're not sure what is worthy and what is frivolous, read
the 911 reports rules.
At the end of the test period (the next week or two), City Hall will select
those citizens whose reports are *always* on target to become the first
members of the Patrol.
Patrol members will get a special Patrol Team hat and will take on extra
responsibilities to help safeguard the well-being of our town.
Patrol members will be expected to not abuse their powers in any
way, whether by bragging about or using their position in selfish or corrupt
ways. One slip-up and you'll lose your spot, so start good and stay good.
The try-out starts now -- get started! All good citizens naturally
keep their eyes peeled, concerned for the safety of others as well
as themselves. Join the Whyville Safety Patrol, and safety will become
your middle name! :)
