Patrol/Traffic Safety Officers

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs are typically organized at the individual school level or among a cluster of schools or school districts. Working in Patrol Operations or Traffic, you are keenly aware of the public safety and traffic concerns in your community. Your knowledge of local traffic patterns and neighborhood crime issues makes you an important member of a local Safe Routes to School steering committee.
