PCSO To Hold School Crossing Recognition Breakfast

The Polk County Sheriff's Office School Crossing Unit will host its annual recognition breakfast at 9 a.m., March 2, 2002, at the W.H. Stuart Conference Center in Bartow. 

The crossing guards will be recognized for their dedicated and faithful service to the Polk County Sheriff's Office and the community.

Crossing guards are part-time members of the Sheriff's Office and are assigned to specific locations throughout the county.  It is their responsibility to oversee the safe crossing of children traveling to and from elementary schools. The guards report to their post 5 days a week regardless of weather conditions. Crossing guards are some of the most highly visible county employees, and they serve as positive role models for one of Polk's most valuable resources, children. 

The Polk County Sheriff's Office would like to thank Colorado Boxed Beef, Publix Super Markets Charities, Spring Haven Retirement Community, Born To Retire-Nationwide Insurance, Imperial Polk Credit Union, and the Knights of Columbus #4726 for contributing to the recognition breakfast.
