Parents dropping and picking their children up from school will notice an increased police presence around Goulburn.
With children now back at school, Highway Patrol and the Goulburn Mulwaree Council have teamed up to crack down on road safety.
Police, in conjunction with council rangers, will conduct daily compliance checks in the morning and afternoon at schools in Goulburn.
Each of the 14 Highway Patrol officers in Goulburn have been assigned a school to monitor as part of their duties.
Officer in charge of Goulburn Police Station Inspector Matthew Hinton said the aim was to "make sure your kids get home safely".
"A locally based officer will know who is not doing the right thing," he said.
"Children are unpredictable near the road and hard to see.
"The last thing we want is kids weaving through traffic."
He said parents needed to know where to drop off children, where to park and to not block traffic.
Goulburn Highway Patrol officer Constable Hayley Upton urged parents to have patience around school zones.
She said motorists should aim to leave more time and may have to "take a lap around the block" to find a safe spot.
"We are working together to keep your kids safe."
Information will be sent out through school newsletters detailing safety procedures and fines for doing the wrong thing.
Council road safety and traffic officer Tracey Norberg urged parents to hold their kids' hand near roads and to teach them to "get out of the safe side of the car".
"Get out of the passenger side even if it means climbing across seats," she said.
Goulburn West Public School principal Scott Osborne said he expected parents to demonstrate road safety to their children.
