CAA Saskatchewan School Safety Patrol®
CAA School Safety Patrollers have shared with CAA that they gain confidence, learn responsibility, and leadership through the program and that they model these traits to other students in their communities. CAA patrollers help keep Saskatchewan school zones safe by helping their peers cross the streets safely on their routes to and from school. They work together to learn more about pedestrian and traffic safety. The program is successful thanks to the combined support of CAA Saskatchewan, municipal police, RCMP, school divisions, teachers, parents, and the student volunteer patrollers.
CAA Saskatchewan has coordinated and managed the CAA School Safety Patrol program since 1951. For over 60 years CAA School Safety Patrollers have helped keep Saskatchewan school zones safe. There are approximately 4,700 patrollers, from 163 schools representing 70 communities in our province. Before participating in the program, patrollers receive training with complimentary materials provided by CAA including patroller handbooks, stop paddles, vests, and whistles. Local law enforcement and a designated CAA School Safety Patrol coordinator from the registered school provides the classroom training. It’s important for all CAA School Safety Patrol Coordinators to register their schools annually with CAA Saskatchewan. This will help ensure coordinators receive updates and new information about the CAA School Safety Patrol program.

CAA School Safety Patrol® 2018 Jamboree
CAA Saskatchewan was thrilled to celebrate another successful year with our CAA School Safety Patrollers by hosting the annual CAA School Safety Patrol Jamboree. This year, we hosted TWO full day Jamboree events. One for northern Saskatchewan CAA patrollers, hosted in Saskatoon on Friday, May 4 and one for southern Saskatchewan CAA patrollers, hosted in Regina on Monday, April 30.
The Jamboree events coincided with “CAA School Safety Patrol Week”, April 30 to May 4, 2018, in Saskatchewan, as proclaimed by Deputy Premier and Minister of Education, Gordon Wyant.
“I would like to commend the Canadian Automobile Association of Saskatchewan for their years of commitment to ensuring a safe school zone through the School Safety Program. I appreciate the dedication of the 4,700 young volunteers who participate in this program, protecting and enlightening their fellow students on traffic safety. I thank you for continuing to create these opportunities for all of us to recognize and honour the important service the patrollers are providing to schools across our province.” - Minister Gordon Wyant
The annual CAA School Safety Patrol Jamboree is designed to thank and honour the student patrollers for their volunteer work and dedication in helping keep school communities safe.
The northern Saskatchewan CAA School Safety Patrol Jamboree was held at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo and included: free time in the Zoo and Park to explore and learn more about the many animals, a hip-hop demonstration and workshop, and safety presentations by Saskatoon Police Service School Resource Officers. 155 patrollers and 30 chaperones from Outlook, Prince Albert, Rosetown, Saskatoon, Spiritwood, and Wakaw attended.
The southern Saskatchewan CAA School Safety Patrol Jamboree was held at the Saskatchewan Science Centre and included: free time to explore exhibits and have fun with hands-on activities, an IMAX film, a Zumba demonstration, and safety presentations by Regina Police Service School Resource Officers. 302 patrollers and 49 chaperones from Bienfait, Estevan, Lanigan, Maple Creek, Moose Jaw, Regina, Weyburn, Wynyard, Yorkton, and Stanley Mission were in attendance.
At both Jamboree events, the 2018 Saskatchewanderer Kevin Dunn ‘wandered’ with the patrollers and also provided a luncheon presentation on his experiences focusing on Saskatchewan as the best place to live, work, and play.
Thank you to our community sponsors for making this year’s CAA School Safety Patrol Jamborees a success: Scotiabank, Access Communications, WesternLitho Printers, Regina Police Service, Saskatoon Police Service, Catering by Rebello Food Studio Inc., Pizza Hut, and def SOL Productions. We’d also like to thank the 2018 Saskatchewanderer, Kevin Dunn, for being an excellent CAA Ambassador for our valued patrollers.
