The Dundalk Eagle - - POLICE BEAT -

The Bal­ti­more County Po­lice Depart­ment needs men and women to serve as school cross­ing guards. If you have been think­ing of a way to be­come more in­volved in your com­mu­nity while get­ting paid to do so, this is the time to act. Par­ents, grand­par­ents, col­lege stu­dents or any­one who wants to help in­sure the safety of chil­dren to and from school are en­cour­aged to ap­ply.

The pay is $13.70 per hour and the time com­mit­ment is only two hours daily, Mon­day through Fri­day.

When schools have off due to in­clement weather, so do you, with­out loss of pay.

You in­cur paid leave as you gain years of ex­pe­ri­ence.

You may re­ceive paid na­tional and state hol­i­days from Septem­ber through June.

Equip­ment and uni­forms are free of charge.

This is the per­fect part-time job for stayat-home par­ents, re­tirees and those with a lit­tle ex­tra time in the morn­ing and af­ter­noon. The best part of the job is the sat­is­fac­tion of know­ing that you play a ma­jor role in keep­ing the chil­dren in your neigh­bor­hood safe in their trav­els.
