AAA School Safety Patrol

Creating safe schools empowered by student leaders.

Patrol Program Overview

Since 1920, AAA School Safety Patrol has offered a unique pedestrian safety program for millions of students across the country. As a peer-to-peer leadership program, Patrollers teach other students about traffic safety, while keeping their classmates safe along walking routes, bus loading zones, and carpool areas. In addition to these life-saving measures, the program fosters lifelong values in leadership, responsibility, and volunteerism among the students, schools, and communities who participate.
