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 make arrests. Civilian traffic-control officers are selected based on the following criteria:

  • Background check conducted by lieutenant in charge of professional standards and training
  • City of Beaufort application submitted to the Human Resources Department
  • Hiring board results
  • Polygraph
  • Willingness and physical ability to work in adverse weather conditions
