The newest group of AAA Safety Patrollers is on duty at a northwest Detroit school.

AAA Michigan said Wednesday that the 26 students at Gompers Elementary and Middle School have received special training this month from safety experts to help other students at the new school cross busy streets and board buses.

They will patrol in the mornings and afternoons during school days, wearing bright, yellow-green AAA Safety Patrol belts. About 1,600 students already are members of the Safety Patrol in Detroit. More than 33,000 are at schools across the state.

The first AAA Safety Patrol was launched in Detroit in 1919.
