School Crossing Guards

The Unified Police Department Special Operations Division is staffed with 260 regular and substitute crossing guards for 69 area schools in Canyons, Jordan, and Granite School Districts. These schools are located within the unincorporated / township areas of Salt Lake County, as well as in Herriman City, Holladay City, Midvale City, Riverton City, and Taylorsville City through a contract agreement with the UPD.

These dedicated men and women brave the various extreme weather conditions to ensure the safety of the children as they cross hazardous roadways going to and from school.

The Unified Police Department appreciates these hard-working crossing guards, and we are committed to keeping our children safe.
