CAA Saskatchewan School Safety Patrol Program
Since the creation of the School Safety Patrol program in 1922 by the Chicago Motor Club, millions of youthful volunteers have served as School Safety Patrollers in more than 30 countries. CAA/AAA Clubs sponsor school safety patrol programs in more than 50,000 schools.
CAA Saskatchewan has coordinated and managed the School Safety Patrol program since 1951 and now, approximately 3,924 patrollers assist in 57 communities with approximately 150 schools around the province. CAA Saskatchewan supplies training materials, stop paddles and reflective vests free of charge. Caps, toques and some other items are available at cost. There has never been a serious or fatal injury collision at a crosswalk controlled by our CAA School Safety Patrollers.
If you have any questions about the School Safety patrol program or would like to start a patrol at your school, please contact Clare Britz at email@example.com or call 306.310.6222 ext. 0991.

The CAA School Safety Patrol Jamboree is attended by more than 120 patrollers and chaperones. The agenda includes visits to Government House and the Saskatchewan Science Centre. Entertainment and other fun activities are also part of the weekend festivities.
