TRAIL SAFETY PATROL TEAM

 
 

Trail Safety Team members patrol in pairs throughout San Jose's urban trail system on electric bicycles, providing a visible security presence. Patrollers use an online reporting matrix provided by the City of San Jose to report illegal or suspicious activities to the responsible authorities. The Trail Safety Team makes our urban trails safe and accessible to the public.

​SOME THINGS WE DO

 

Continuous Presence

 

Being a presence on the trail and reporting illegal or inappropriate activities to the proper authorities

 

Visitor Satisfaction

 

Fixing trail hazards (broken glass on trail, vegetation encroachment, holes in fences, etc.)

Informed Assistance

 

Assisting with information requests from public (for navigation/directions, distance, etc.)

TRAIL SAFETY STRIKE TEAM

 
 
The Trail Safety Strike Team employs a San Jose Conservation Corps (SJCC) team of 4-6 corpsmembers on an as needed basis to repair selected trails for public agencies. 
 
The Strike Team fixes substantial trail safety hazards and provide repair activities within 48-hours of being reported.
