There are many components to a successful Crossing Guard program. The safety of school children being the priority. To accomplish this requires recruiting, selecting, training and maintaining quality school safety and crossing guard staff. We are sensitive to the fact that all interactions with our children should be positive, uplifting and always with an eye towards safety. Only enthusiastic, friendly and positive individuals are sought to work as school safety officers and crossing guards. As mentioned prior national criminal background checks complete the employment process.
To maximize value to school children and taxpayers our approach is a Block-by-Block recruiting effort. Meaning we seek individuals residing in the neighborhood that have unique knowledge and vested interest in protecting our children. Who better to notice baseline changes or when things are optimum? The City of Cranston, Rhode Island is a leading American city that has identified and seized the opportunity to save taxpaying residents serious money. Over 16 years the city has saved an estimated 18.2 million in privatizing school safety and crossing guard services.
