School Crossing Guards
The department employs part-time individuals to staff our school crossing guard program. the program currently has 20 crossings at five elementary schools, two middle schools, and one private school. There are two crossing guards posted to most schools. At larger intersections and higher traffic locations such as Turrentine Middle School, there are three guards. Broadview Middle and Blessed Sacrament Catholic School have only one guard each.
The traffic team focuses on city-wide traffic enforcement via speed measurement instruments, paying particular attention to accident-causing violations and other traffic conditions. Enforcement activities focus on high accident areas, citizen complaints, motorist assistance, funeral escorts, parades, and any other condition that affects traffic safety.
