Since its inception in 1921, the School Safety Patrol has grown into what is now the largest safety program in the world. As school-age leaders in traffic safety, patrol members teach other students about traffic safety on a peer-to-peer basis.
AAA Minneapolis and its Foundation have an exclusive sponsorship of the patrol programs in Hennepin County, reaching approximately 5,000 patrol members at more than 140 schools. Each year, our organization provides all the programs with the necessary patrol training materials, safety supplies, and recognition items completely free of charge. During the program’s local history, there has never been a traffic-related student death at a patrol-guarded crossing.
