- Ongoing Call to Members
Remember that day you achieved your PSPA certification? Most likely
it came as a result of lots of hard work and training. The process is
not simple and requires candidates to push themselves to vastly increase
their patrolling skills and knowledge.
As a member of PSPA you bring these increased skills back to the patrolling
world every day. The strength of the organization is the diversity of
its membership. As a member the organization is calling on you to promote
PSPA within your respective patrols. Often this may simply mean answering
questions about the certification process or pointing the person in
the right direction to get information. Motivating and helping others
to also strive for certification is the best gift you can give to a
