Job Opportunity: Seasonal Part-Time Crossing Guard

The East Rochester Police Department is looking to fill Seasonal Part-Time Crossing guards. 

As a school crossing guard, you get the personal sense of job satisfaction as you safeguard school children walking across busy intersections on their way to and from school.

The ideal candidate would be available for both morning and afternoon shifts. Prior to appointment, prospective candidates must pass a qualifying medical examination, which includes drug screening, and a character/background investigation.
