Skating for Safety

The Northwest Coalition for Roadway Safety is a proud sponsor of the Safety Patrol in St. Joseph. The Safety Patrol is organized by Officer Todd Smith of the St. Joseph Police Department. Through the program, students learn and practice basic traffic safety rules, becoming leaders in their schools and communities by helping fellow students get to and from school safely, whether in a car, walking or riding a bus or bicycle.

Every December, Officer Smith invites all Safety Patrol members to the local roller skating rink for a celebration to recognize their hard work and leadership skills. Attendees can skate for free, refreshments are provided and door prizes given away. They also receive a t-shirt with the Buckle Up and Arrive Alive messages to wear as they continue to teach at their school and in their communities throughout the year.
