School is back in session in Fulton County, and folks driving by Cambridge High School in Milton might notice a slight change.
At the intersection of Bethany Bend and Cogburn Road near the school, a Milton police officer will work as a crossing guard of sorts, assisting with pedestrian traffic during weekday mornings and afternoons until new pedestrian signals are up and running.
Milton officials say this is an ongoing project in the area, and officers will be there until the crosswalk work is completed.
Aside from this location, Fulton County schools have elected to begin utilizing officers from the Fulton County Marshal’s Department and the Georgia State Patrol for traffic direction at Milton area schools this year, per a press release from the city. Previously, Milton had used off-duty police officers for this work.
These changes went into effect on Aug. 7, the day students returned to Fulton schools for the 2017-18 academic year.
