School Crossing Guard Program

School Crossing Guard

Program Mission

Our mission is to serve the community by providing safety for children, or other pedestrians, en route to and from school. We do this by teaching children to cross properly, overseeing safe crossings, and observing and reporting any activity that may pose a danger at assigned locations before and after school.

Access a complete list of the schools (PDF) in which the Irving Police Department provides school crossing guards, the staffed locations, and the assigned crossing guards’ work schedule.

Note that a school crossing guard's assigned work schedule may not necessarily reflect the full duration of posted school zones.
