Hello, I work for a provincial correctional agency in Canada . We are trying to organize a dragon boat team. Some administrative staff have asked if they can paddle. Do all paddlers have to be status-ed peace officers. What about the caller or the steers person? thanks,Mehran

Bruce Blechl Drummers and sweeps can be non sworn personnel but they are not eligible to receive medals. As for the paddlers, yes, they have to be sworn as either law enforcement of fire/rescue. Hope that helps 3 years ago

Sarah Beamon Stephanie, based on the WPFG Dragon Boat rules, drummers must be registered competitors, meaning they must be sworn law enforcement or fire/rescue. Sweeps, however, do not need to be sworn personnel. 2 years ago
