Release, City of Fairfax:

The City of Fairfax Police Department is seeking qualified applicants to fill multiple school crossing guard positions at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year in September. 

“Ensuring the safety of our children on their way to and from school is a vital function of the police department,” said Major Carl R. Pardiny, Acting Chief of Police. “This year we are losing four dedicated crossing guards with a combined total of almost 100 years of service. We are hopeful that some of our local area residents will be interested in serving in these important positions. These are ideal part-time positions for persons wishing to make a real contribution to the safety of our community. When a crossing guard is not available, it is necessary to divert a police officer from his or her regular duties to protect children at the crossing.” 

Applicants are required to have a high school diploma or equivalent and an ability and willingness to work with children. A valid driver’s license and good driving record are required. The selection process includes an interview, background investigation and a polygraph examination. 

Crossing guards normally work Monday through Friday for approximately two to four hours daily in split shifts between 6:45 AM and 4:15 PM. The salary is $13.52 an hour and limited benefits are provided. 

Application forms may be accessed and submitted on the City Web site, fairfaxva.gov or picked up and submitted at the City of Fairfax personnel office at Room 331 in City Hall at 10455 Armstrong Street. 

For additional information about these positions contact Sergeant Michael Duncan at (703) 273-2889.
