Crossing Guards Needed

The Merchantville Police Department is currently accepting applications for Full Time and Part Time Crossing Guards. Adult school crossing guards play an important role in the lives of children who walk or bike to school. Young children are more vulnerable to crashes when crossing the street because, until the age of 9 or 10, they lack the motor and cognitive skills required to safely navigate many traffic situations. Crossing guards aid children in safely crossing the street, and through their example, crossing guards help children develop the skills necessary to cross streets safely. In addition, crossing guards serve as a visual alert to drivers about the presence of children. Please contact Fran MeyersThis email address is being protected from spambots.
