Traffic Unit - School Crossing Guards
The primary responsibility of a school crossing guard is to help children
safely cross the street as they walk or bicycle to and from school. The school
crossing guard controls traffic when the children are in the intersection and
encourages safe behavior by all pedestrians. In addition, they are the eyes on
the street for: unsafe drivers, unsafe pedestrians, unlawful parking, and
construction interfering with safe crossing, unsafe street conditions, damaged
signs, poor visibility and suspicious activity.
The Henderson Police Department employees approximately 160 school crossing guards, for 24 elementary schools at 45 designated school crossings.
