Provost Guard

Provost Guard

The Provost–a trusted unit dedicated to serving the Shrine and the public.

The Provost Guard Unit of Osman Shrine Temple was founded on March 5, 1959 to provide Aides-de-Camp to the Potentate of the Temple. One year later, March 16, 1960, the Unit was officially recognized by the Osman Temple. Its members served as drivers for the Nobility at ceremonials, parades, and other Temple functions.

Over the years, the Provost has evolved to a Unit composed of both active and social members who perform a variety of functions. The Provost members continue to be available to the Nobility in chauffeuring, directing traffic and parking at various Temple functions. In addition, the Provost Guard members are highly visible at parades as they accompany other Temple units, as well as provide crowd control and security.
