Flower Mound Police Department announces three job fairs to recruit crossing guards

The Flower Mound Police Department is set to take over the town's crossing guard program Nov. 6.

The Flower Mound Police Department has scheduled three job fairs in September to recruit school crossing guards as it prepares to take over the crossing guard program Nov. 6.

The job fairs are scheduled as follows:

  • Sept. 20: 10 a.m.-2 p.m. — Community Activity Center, 1200 Gerault Road, Flower Mound

  • Sept. 25: 10 a.m.-2 p.m. — Flower Mound Senior Center, 2701 W. Windsor Dr., Flower Mound

  • Sept. 27: 10 a.m.-2 p.m. — Community Activity Center, 1200 Gerault Road, Flower Mound


According to the department, the town aims to hire about 60 crossing guards. Job fair attendees will be able to receive information about being a crossing guard, to submit applications and to be interviewed at the event.

FMPD's recruitment effort comes following the Flower Mound Town Council's split decision to cancel its contract with outside servicer All City Management Services Inc. and to transfer the town's crossing guard program to the Police Department.

The decision was made against the recommendation of Police Chief Andy Kancel, who said the department, which was understaffed by 10 police officers as of Aug. 5, would be strained if it had to take over the crossing guard program by November.
