LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – As thousands of students get ready to go back to school next week, local police want to make sure drivers slow down and watch out for young pedestrians.

School crossing guards help children cross the street safely.

Metro says the department has enough crossing guards – more than 400 – ready to help protect returning students.

North Las Vegas has more than 100 guards, but is looking to fill about eight more positions.

“We like to kick it off in the right way at the beginning of the year, so this way it kind of sets a precedent that we do have guards out there and we are looking for a safer way for our children to cross the roadways,” said North Las Vegas Police Officer Aaron Patty.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
