Safety Patrol Enhances Pedestrian Safety
For as long as elementary school students can remember, they look forward to being in 5th grade so they take part in a rite of passage – joining School Safety Patrol.
School Safety Patrol consists of students who volunteer to help fellow elementary school students get to and from school safely. The program is sponsored by AAA and facilitated by the Santa Clara Police Department to promote pedestrian safety. The program instills students with a sense of responsibility, leadership and safety awareness with a goal of creating leaders who value teamwork and volunteerism.
Next time you are driving in a school zone, slow down, and follow instructions of our School Safety Patrol participants.
