School Safety Patrol Program


The School Safety Patrol Program (SSPP), developed by the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA), is a three-way partnership among the CAA, Police Services and school boards. It is a voluntary, elementary school program. School-selected students must attend a training session conducted by the Hamilton Police Services. At the school level, a teacher supervisor is responsible for coordinating the SSPP and for supervising the student bus and foot patrollers.

SSPP will train approximately 1,100 patrollers annually commencing in the fall of 2011.

Target Audience: Generally, the patrollers must be in Grade 6, 7 or 8.
