***** Crossing Guards *****

Areas in and around schools will be very congested before and after school. You should consider an alternate route or allowing extra time if you travel near a school during the drop-off and pick-up times, particularly the first week of school.

The school crossing guards are part of the police department family and work very hard to keep the children safe. A Lead Crossing Guard supervises 34 guards. The Lead Crossing Guard reports to the Traffic Sergeant. The authority of crossing guards is granted by the transportation code. The school crossing guards work in extreme weather and heavy traffic. The police department will not tolerate drivers disregarding our school crossing guards. Please look out for them as they look out for the kids.
