School Crossing Guards
The primary duty of civilian traffic control officers is to expedite the safe crossing of pedestrians to and from school locations. These personnel are not sworn officers and do not have the authority to arrest. Civilian traffic control officers will be selected based on the following criteria:
• City of Beaufort application submitted to the human resource department
• Background check conducted by the Professional Standards and Training Lieutenant
• Hiring Board results
• Willingness and physical ability to work in adverse weather conditions
We currently have three school crossing guards at the police department.
