Q. Why does the crossing guard at Pine Valley Elementary School wear a rain coat with the word “SHERIFF” on the back? Isn’t this illegal?
A. No, this is not illegal.
School crossing guards in New Hanover County and volunteers are under the sheriff’s office, said sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Jerry Brewer. The sheriff’s office is responsible for the coordination of school crossing guards and providing them with equipment such as vests and rain jackets.
