Rutherford County needs 15 school crossing guards

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) - Rutherford County is looking to hire more than a dozen school crossing guards.  

Each school crossing guard works approximately two hours a day.

The crossing guard is responsible for the safety and orderly flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic within a designated school zone. Hours depend on the bell times of each school and pay is $34 a day.

“Some of our schools are in high traffic areas and so our traffic guards play a valuable role of keeping kids safe as they arrive and depart school,” Sgt. Tim Hayes said. “We also have many students who walk to school. It’s all about student safety.” 

All necessary uniforms and equipment will be furnished by the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office.
