Junior Road Safety Officers
What do the JRSO's do?
JRSO's are an invaluable resource in Primary Schools as they promote road safety to the whole school. The scheme is run by Lothian & Borders Police Road Safety Officers and each school has its own dedicated Officer. You can find out who your Road Safety Officer is by downloading their contact details.
JRSOs are a very important part of the primary school as they help raise road safety awareness and promote road safety issues to everyone in the school and the wider community. Here are just some of the activities JRSOs can get involved in:
- Talk at assemblies and to classes on road safety topics
- Run competitions in the school, get prizes for the winners and hand out merit certificates
- Use the www.streetwiseguys.co.uk website
- Use the members area of this website
- Write letters
- Employ next year's JRSOs by displaying the advert, handing out application forms and sitting on the interview panel
- Get involved in organising safe and active travel activities.
