School Crossing Guards

 
 
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office School Crossing Guards ensure our children who walk to school get to and from school safely. These guards are assigned to schools in the morning and afternoon when children are arriving and departing the schools. The crossing guard has a primary duty of safely assisting students in crossing streets. This is done by traffic direction or diversion.
 
The school crossing guards receive special training.  Annual in-service training is also used for updates on safety issues.
 
Basic requirements for school crossing guards:
·                    Over 18 years of age
·                    Physically able to stand for extended periods
·                    Physically able to use good arm movements for traffic direction
·                    Able to work in all types of weather
 
For more detailed requirements, and any other information or questions, please contact Glenn Rutledge at 337-491-3620 or grutledge@cpso.com
