CAA School Safety Patrol®.
Created in 1929, the CAA School Safety Patrol program has run in partnership with police services, school boards, teachers, bus consortiums and student volunteers. The program was developed to protect and educate elementary school children on safe road-crossing practices.
With more traffic than ever before, CAA School Safety Patrollers are keeping their peers safe in school zones and on school buses in over 800 schools across Ontario.
