Member Bylaws

2.  No alcohol is permitted before or during an investigation.  No P.A.R.T. member is permitted to use any form of illegal drugs at any time.  If alcohol or drug use is suspected, that member will be immediately and permanently dismissed from P.A.R.T.

3.  No perfumes, colognes or other fragrances should be worn during an investigation, as this can interfere with other investigators' senses.

4.  Members performing investigations should wear comfortable, but safe footwear and dark, non-reflective clothes.  Members should obtain at least one official t-shirt (when available) as it is part of the standard uniform.

5.  During an investigation, members will respect our clients' property.
