School Crossing Guard Program
The City of Sunnyvale adult school crossing guard program is administered by the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety. The Department currently employs 40-45 part time crossing guards throughout the city. The City also likes to keep on staff alternate crossing guards who substitute when one of our regular guards is away or ill.
As is true for all school crossing protection measures, certain warrants and/or criteria are used to determine the locations adult school crossing guards are to be staffed. The City’s Traffic Engineering Department conducts such warrant studies.
Adult crossing guards should not direct traffic, except that they may create gaps in the traffic stream at opportune times. The presence of a crossing guard in the roadway serves as an easily recognized indication to drivers that pedestrians are about to use the crosswalk, and that all traffic must stop. Their role is to safely expedite the movement of elementary and middle school children to and from school by creating gaps in traffic. California law indicates that any person who disregards any traffic signal or direction given by a non-student school crossing guard authorized by a law enforcement agency shall be guilty of an infraction and subject to the penalties of Section 42001 of the California Vehicle Code (CVC Section 2815).
The very presence of school crossing guards tends to prevent unlawful and unsafe acts by pedestrians and/or motorist. By employing proper safety procedures and by exercising due caution, crossing guards can help to instill in roadway users desirable practices which can, in time, become habits.
If you would like information on becoming a school crossing guard or general information please contact the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety at (408) 730-7104.
