During long weekends, the BCSS will work alongside the police with the intention of keeping the public orderly and safe.
There are also specialized units in the BCSS. The Integrated Threat Assessment Unit (ITAU) assess threats towards government and public officials as well as work with other law enforcement to gather, assess and manage intelligence. These sheriffs also manage and assist with operational planning.
Then there is the Protective Operations Unit (POU) is in charge of the protection of individuals who may be in danger due to the nature of their work. Or perhaps these people have been threatened. The POU will conduct infrastructure and vulnerability assessments, personal protection, transport operations, residential, site, and special event protection.
There are also specialized units to execute outstanding warrants on fugitives from other provincial jurisdictions and, using the Con Air program, these sheriffs will escort the person to the jurisdiction they are wanted in. Of course, the BCSS will return wanted people to jurisdictions in BC too.
The S.P.O.C. is also responsible for the provincial fleet operations (P.F.O.) and manages the Sheriff's Fugitive Return Program planning and deployments.
The fugitive return program is funded by the Civil Forfeiture within the BC Government. Under the program members of BCSS work alongside other B.C. Law Enforcement partners to remove persons with outstanding warrants from other Canadian provinces and return the wanted persons to the province of jurisdictions.
I would like to thank Wikipedia for the information on the BCSS.
I hope you find the beauty around you.
