Crossing Guards

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:

  • Background check conducted by the Professional Standards and Training Lieutenant
  • City of Beaufort application submitted to the human resource department
  • Hiring Board results
  • Polygraph
  • Willingness and physical ability to work in adverse weather conditions

Current Crossing Guards

We currently have three school crossing guards at the police department.
