The NJ Crossing Guard Training & Resources Program provides research-based training and tools for crossing guards and the traffic safety officers who supervise them. School crossing guards assist children in crossing the roadways on their way to and from school, and they model appropriate street skills and behavior for young children. As part of the NJ Safe Routes to School Resource Center, the Crossing Guard Program prepares crossing guards for their duties and supports them through projects that address pedestrian safety. If you need training and resources for crossing guards in your community, contact us.
This State-approved program is supported by New Jersey Department of Transportation and New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety with funding from Federal Highway Administration, with additional funding from the New Jersey Municipal Excess Liability Joint Insurance Fund and support through Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
