Summer Safety Patrol Camp

The Arlington County Police Department’s Youth Outreach Unit conducts a Summer Safety Patrol Camp to prepare students for safety patrols during the upcoming academic year. This five day camp is sponsored by AAA and offered to incoming 4th and 5th grade students. Arlington County Police Officers educate camp participants on the various responsibilities of being an effective safety patrol member. During the academic year, safety patrol members help keep other students safe on their way to and from school. As school-age leaders in transportation safety, they remind other students of the safety rules learned during this camp and help guide them in safe crossing and bus passenger procedures. Safety patrol members serve as models to younger students.

Thank you for your interest in the 2022 Summer Safety Patrol Camp. The application period is now closed. Additional class dates will be announced at a later time.
