Cross­ing guards needed in Bal­ti­more County

The Avenue News - - NEWS -

The Bal­ti­more County Po­lice Depart­ment needs men and women to serve as school cross­ing guards. There is an in­crease in the de­mand through­out the en­tire county, but due to road de­vel­op­ment and traf­fic con­cerns, the need is es­pe­cially great in the cen­tral sec­tions of Bal­ti­more County. 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 $13.04 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. Ad­di­tion­ally, you in­cur paid leave as you gain years of ex­pe­ri­ence. You may re­ceive paid na­tional and state hol­i­days from Septem­ber through June. You will be given your equip­ment and uni­forms free of charge.

Those wish­ing to ap­ply to the Bal­ti­more County Po­lice Depart­ment for the po­si­tion of cross­ing guard need to be at least 18 years old. All ap­pli­cants will un­dergo a back­ground check, in­clud­ing fin­ger­print­ing.

This is the per­fect part-time job for stay-at-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.

Ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion about the School Guard Team and how to ap­ply to be­come a Bal­ti­more County cross­ing guard are avail­able on­line.
