All is set for Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office School Crossing Guard Appreciation Day. Nearly 60 School Crossing Guards will be honored as they receive Length of Service Certificates; Florida Department of  Transportation Badges; and Perfect Attendance Certificates.

The event will be held at the Elk’s Lodge #1525 located at 1240 San Christopher Drive in Dunedin.

The program is set to begin at 9:45 a.m. on Friday, February 1, 2013. 

The Sheriff’s Office is set to honor the service and dedication of members of the School Crossing Guard Program during Florida’s Annual School Crossing Guard Appreciation Day.

The Governor has designated Friday, February 1, 2013 as School Crossing Guard Appreciation Day in the State of Florida.

Sheriff Bob Gualtieri will present Length of Service and Perfect Attendance Certificates to members; and school crossing guard badges to guards who have most recently completed their initial Florida Department of Transportation (F.D.O.T.) Certification.

The PCSO School Crossing Guard Program presently has 131 crossing guards covering 188 school crossing posts for 36 elementary schools, 9 middle schools and one high school in the unincorporated area as well as in the contract cities of Dunedin, Safety Harbor, Oldsmar, Seminole and Madeira Beach.

The School Crossing Guard Program began in 1972 as a volunteer program. Through the years the program has grown to meet and adhere to F.D.O.T. standards. Each school crossing guard attends a mandatory six-hour classroom training session and two-hours of field training. This is followed up with three days of field training at the guard’s assigned post.

The media is invited to attend. For further information please contact the Public Information Office at (727) 582-6221.
