Public Safety Programs


Chicago Public Schools Safe Passage Program:
School Community Watch Services are designed to provide safe routes for students traveling to and from school daily. Your school has a uniquely tailored School Community Watch strategy. This strategy considers the community around your school, popular models of student transportation, arrival and dismissal times, and student residences. You can identify school community watchers by their yellow safety vests with the words “CPS Community Watch” on the back.

  • South side

    • Barton Elementary (Roberta Williams)
  • West side
    • Marshall High School (Lakita Pearson)
