AAA School Safety Patrol

For more than 87 years, the AAA School Safety Patrol program has provided a safer pedestrian environment and a wide spectrum of educational opportunities for millions of schoolchildren.

The program has been praised by safety and education groups around the globe for reducing injuries and deaths among 5- to 14-year-olds, the age group most at risk for pedestrian injury. The program also instills students with a sense of responsibility and leadership, as each day they protect classmates going to and from school.
