This website provides everything you need to run a successful program.

AAA School Safety Patrol Resources

Day-to-Day

The Operations Manual leads you through the necessary steps to form, organize, operate and support your AAA School Safety Patrol. It includes important safety concepts for students and downloadable forms.

Training

  • You and your patrol members can watch At Your Post together to familiarize yourselves with day-to-day patrol operations and patroller duties.
  • AAA offers advisors an online training experience. Head to the Training Videos page to watch and review these five modules any time you like.

Supplies & Materials

The Supplies & Materials page is likely where you will spend the most time. Visit it to set up your school’s business account so you can shop for and buy AAA-branded patrol supplies and materials through our online shopping cart; visit Alpine Products, to purchase state approved flags and vests.

Funding

The Supplies & Materials page also connects you to the Washington Traffic Safety Commission’s (WTSC) School Zone Crossing Guard Grants program. The state agency is currently accepting applications (until April 30, 2023) to help you pay for specific AAA School Safety Patrol expenses. Until the funds run out, every school with an existing patrol program can apply for a $300 grant each academic year. A one-time $500 grant is available for schools launching a brand-new squad. Just click that “Learn More” button in our School-Zone Safety Grants section.


Hall of Fame

Each year, AAA Washington recognizes the state’s top ten patrollers for their commitment to traffic safety, helping fellow students, and exemplary leadership skills. Please keep an eye out for the nomination packet arriving near the start of each calendar year for a chance to honor your squad’s outstanding member. AAA recognizes all nominees for their work while on patrol, so be sure to participate and submit your top student’s name.
