A Letter from Brad Lander: re: Crossing Guards

Read this letter from Brad Lander’s office and ask your friends!

Dear Parent Coordinators and PTA Leaders,

Many of you reach out to our office about vacant crossing guard posts each school year. As you may be aware, Councilmember Lander has urged greater funding for these posts and improvements to the recruitment process. Last week he met with the central NYPD staff to follow-up on their work.  They have begun rolling out improvements that shorten the recruitment timeline to help meet a goal of establishing backup capacity in each precinct.  We would like to help them meet that goal as quickly as possible!

Currently, the NYPD is seeking more candidates for their next hiring round. With current vacancies in each of the precincts in Councilmember Lander’s district, we hope you will join us in spreading the word about these positions. As appropriate, please circulate the attached flyer within your school community.


Best regards.
Vicki Sell
Office of Councilmember Brad Lander
39th Council District
