New Jersey Crossing Guard Training Program
The New Jersey Safe Routes to School Resource Center conducts training programs for Municipal Police Traffic Safety Officers who supervise school crossing guards. These workshops assist supervisors with uniform and comprehensive training to help crossing guards perform their duties more effectively and safely. The training includes discussion of crossing guard policy and procedures, laws and regulations, hiring, training, and equipment, and hands-on activities to support crossing guards in communities statewide.
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.
