PROCEDURES

When an incident occurs at a BCPAR activity/facility, BCPAR officials have the authority to institute immediate suspensions. BCPAR officials will offer to escort the offending individual(s) from the activity/facility. If the offending individual(s) refuses to leave the premises, local law enforcement will be contacted immediately.

It is BCPAR’s desire that situations never warrant the removal of an individual from any activity or facility. However, it is our obligation to maintain a controlled, safe and healthy atmosphere for everyone. Recreational activities are designed to foster qualities such as character building, social interaction, enjoyment, and relaxation while educating the general public and promoting healthy lifestyles.
