    Role of the School Safety Patrol

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

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

    School Safety Patrol members:

    • Teach fellow students about safety.
    • Serve other leadership functions under the direction of school officials

    Typically, teachers appoint Patrol members, who participate with parental approval. A teacher usually serves as patrol supervisor.
