The Riverdale Police Department has an active School Crossing Guard Program providing guards at ten different locations throughout the village.

Most of the guards are retirees who choose to stay active in the community during their retirement years and at the same time supplement their income.

The goal of the program is the safety of our children as they travel to and from school. Previous experience is not required, and training of the proper and safe methods in which to help children across busy streets is provided by Program Coordinator Sgt. Milton. Each guard is issued a safety vest, rain gear and a hand-held stop sign.

The Police Department is proud of the long tenure of our guards. Applications are available on request at The Riverdale Village Hall and The Riverdale Police Department.
