The Safety Patrol is a student organization that acts as school police by solving crimes, upholding rules and protecting those who need protecting. Their headquarters is located in the school and is equipped with desks, computers, telephones, interrogation rooms and a criminal holding area.
The X Middle School Safety Patrol Headquarters is also the annex for the Glee Club.
The members of the Safety Patrol have certain authority over the other students and sometimes over the teachers. They also have the ability to leave grounds, with faculty permission, to visit people outside school who they believe may have a connection to a crime.
The Safety Patrol has many resources at its disposal including access to the school's mainframe, to club minutes and member profiles, and to extremely quick broadband. The main features are the containment room where all the criminals are held before they are picked up by their parents or by Principal Folsom, the interrogation room is fixed with a two way mirror in a soundproof chamber where Vallejo usually observes important discussions with suspects.
Like the chief of police, the Junior Commissioner is responsible for the actions of the members of the Safety Officers. He has the ability to dismiss and recruit new members and give them certain authority over certain cases. Horatio Vallejo is the current Junior Commissioner of the Safety Patrol in X Middle School.
At MacLuhan Middle School, located in the southern state of Tennessee, the head of the Safety Patrol instead holds the title of Patrol Sheriff. Wayne Liggett is the current Patrol Sheriff of the Safety Patrol in MacLuhan Middle School.
