The school patrol is present every school-day as the pupils arrive at or leave their school.

Improving safety in the vicinity of schools

The Schools Department receives regular requests from the population for one of the many crossings near the city’s schools to be patrolled. This is not always possible for legal and financial reasons.

The following additional measures, often better suited to the particularities of each location, can be taken to increase safety on the way to and from school:
