School Safety and Education Unit

The School Safety and Education Unit is responsible for contributing to the safety of school age children as they travel to and from school. This is accomplished by providing Adult Crossing Guards at designated intersections throughout the City, and providing training, guidance and supervision to the student safety patrols and their adult advisors. The Unit also provides safety education programs and presentations to area schools and at community events.  These presentations specifically address the topics of pedestrian and bicycle safety.  The Unit provides departmental liaison between the Police Department, school districts and administrators, and other mutually concerned groups and organizations.


The School Safety & Education Unit provides 3 major services:


Crossing Guard Program

Recruit, hire, train and supervise Crossing Guards to serve at the authorized Crossing Guard locations.  Currently the unit is responsible for 188 Crossing Guards at 114 locations throughout San Jose. The unit’s goal is to maintain a sufficient number of Crossing Guards in order to staff the maximum number of approved crossing locations within San Jose.

Provide initial Safety Patrol training to 4th and 5th grade students and their adult advisors.  Support safety patrol programs with inspection and evaluation of Student Safety Patrols.
