Crossing Guards and Pedestrian Safety

Adult school crossing guards play an important role in the lives of children who walk or bicycle to school. They help children safely cross the street at key locations throughout the Salt Lake City area. They also remind drivers of the presence of pedestrians. The presence of adult crossing guards can lead to more parents feeling comfortable about their children walking or bicycling to school.  While the primary role of an adult school crossing guard is to guide children safely across the street, children also remain responsible for their own safety. In this manner, a guard plays another key function — a role model helping children develop the skills necessary to cross streets safely at all times. Salt Lake City crossing guards safely assist approximately 11,600 children daily. 
 
Salt Lake City is always looking for individuals willing to commit to the safe crossing of all our students. Crossing guards are paid at a rate of $13 per crossing. Guards may cross children 2 or 3 times daily, these occurr in the morning and in the afternoon.
 
Salt Lake City focuses on the safety for all. We encourage and welcome all individuals to become a part of our team and to help assist in our Crossing Guard program.
