AAA School Safety Patrol

AAA School Safety Patrol members are school-sponsored student volunteers from upper elementary, middle, and junior high schools.

Patrollers direct children, not traffic. As school-age leaders in traffic safety, patrol members teach other students about traffic safety on a peer-to-peer basis. They also serve as models for younger children, who look up to them.

School Safety Patrol members:

  • Complete training in traffic safety.
  • Protect students from hazards of crossing roads and highways on their way to and from school.
  • Assist bus drivers in safely transporting students to and from school.
  • Teach fellow students about traffic safety.
  • Serve in other leadership roles under the direction of school officials.

Typically, teachers and principals appoint patrol members, who participate with parental approval. A teacher usually serves as the patrol advisor.

Being on the School Safety Patrol has lots of benefits. Being a patroller, you will gain:

  • Safety awareness.
  • Leadership skills.
  • Teamwork.
  • Pride.
  • Citizenship and community service.
  • Respect for law enforcement.

  • Traffic safety awareness.
  • Peer-to-peer communication.
  • Character-building opportunities.
  • A constructive outlet for student energy.
  • A positive relationship with parents, law enforcement and the overall community.

Your community also will benefit from:

  • Safer environments for pedestrians and motorists.
  • A spirit of volunteerism and civic-mindedness.
  • A positive collaboration between students, parents, schools and law enforcement.
