The Commissionaires are a Municipal Enforcement agency and act as our Municipal Enforcement Officers to help keep residents of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s safe. In April of 2017, the Commissionaires entered into a joint venture with the Town of Torbay and the Town of Portugal Cove – St. Philip’s to increase the level of security and to enhance a visible presence through in a marked vehicle by patrols throughout the towns. Both the Commissionaires and the RNC have the ability to issue tickets for non-moving violations of the Town’s Traffic Regulations.
Some of the key areas of that the Commissionaires Municipal Enforcement Officers provide support for include:
– Noise complaints (Such as barking dogs, unruly parties and music, and construction after hours)
