Hamilton Police Service and C.A.A. sponsored School Safety Patrol Program Training Camp


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.

Student patrollers will receive instruction on their duties as either a bus or foot patroller. In addition, Bus Patrollers will also learn proper bus evacuation skills.  Students entering this program will take with them a sense of responsibility and commitment to their school and community.

It is the goal of the Hamilton Police Service to keep the children in our community safe.  This program helps to ensure that children can travel to and from school with the comfort of knowing that patrollers are on duty, prepared to make their journey a safe one

Each year, approximately 60 schools within the City of Hamilton participate in the School Safety Patrol Program and approximately 800-900 students are trained.
