Scholar Patrol Project and AwarenessCampaign


Thedevelopment of the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) scholarpatrol project was initiated in 1982 after the Department of Education enteredinto a memorandum of understanding with schools and the previous traffic department. This came as a result of a need:

  • To make children conscious of safety without exposing them to a dangerous traffic situation
  • To encourage the sustainability of scholar patrols by continuous participation
  • To teach children on how to assist fellow learners and other pedestrians to safely cross roads.

Scholarpatrols are groups of students who look after the road safety of the students atthe school. Each school has a scholar patrol group consisting of 20 to 22students.
