The Nassau County Sheriff’s Office furnishes School Crossing Guards during the school year to assist children to safely cross roadways going to and from school. The Guards recently completed re-fresher training for the upcoming 2017/2018 school year.
School Crossing Guards are responsible for the safe crossing of thousands of students who walk or ride bicycles to and from school each day. The School Crossing Guards work in the best and the worst weather conditions ensuring the safe crossing of the children in Nassau County.
Although the school zones are clearly marked, many drivers fail to observe the safety regulations within the school zone and the children rely on the School Crossing Guards to stop the traffic flow in order to travel to and from school.
Crossing Guards are a vital part of the NCSO family. Using just a whistle, a vest and a stop sign they keep the children and pedestrians of the county safe.
