school-crossingThe City of Fairview Park Police Department is looking for School Crossing Guards to help children safely cross busy intersections on their way to and from school.

Adult school crossing guards play an important role in the lives of children who walk or bicycle to school. They help children safely cross the street at key locations. They also remind drivers of the presence of pedestrians. The presence of adult crossing guards can lead to more parents feeling comfortable about their children walking or bicycling to school. While the primary role of an adult school crossing guard is to guide children safely across the street, children also remain responsible for their own safety. In this manner, a guard plays another key function — a role model helping children develop the skills necessary to cross streets safely at all times.

The Police Department is recruiting School Crossing Guard candidates. This is an ideal situation for a parent with school-age children.  If interested, please complete the employment application (see link below) and submit it to the Police Department, located at 20777 Lorain Road.  A member of our department will be in contact with you. You may also call the City of Fairview Park Police Department at 440-356-4415 for additional information or to obtain an application.

All candidates are subject to a background investigation and medical screening, which includes drug screening, prior to appointment.
