The 2017-2018 CAA School Safety Patrol Program will include schools across the Hamilton district for both the HWCDSB and HWDSB.

Here are some important points regarding the SSPP:
» Since 1929, the SSPP has spread to every CAA club in Canada;
» The SSPP operates as a partnership involving the CAA, police services and schools; each partner assumes certain roles to support the program;
» At the school level, a teacher or administrator is the supervisor and looks after daily patroller operations;
» There are 2 types of student patrollers – foot patrollers (HWDSB students only) and bus patrollers;
» All student patrollers – bus and foot - must participate in a training session held each fall;
» The mandatory CAA patroller vests are purchased by HWSTS and provided at no cost to all patrollers;
Only the Canadian Automobile Association’s School Safety Patrol Program is recognized and supported by the Hamilton-Wentworth Student Transportation Services.
