New Program: Sheriff`s Community Connection 

One of the best ways to increase the safety of our county is to engage with and actively listen to the communities we protect. As our community policing deputies work hard to establish relationships with families in need, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office is always seeking new ways to garner connections with individuals who are genuinely interested in learning more about law enforcement.

In 2020, there are many ways you can connect with us. Our newest opportunity is a program called Sheriff’s Community Connection (SCC), which occurs on the second Thursday of every month between January and November at the Sheriff’s Administration Building, located at 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo.

SCC provides Pinellas County residents and business leaders an opportunity to meet for lunch with Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office personnel. Attendees receive area-specific crime updates, crime prevention information, an agency update, and are given the chance to ask questions and participate in discussions afterwards.

Annual memberships for individuals cost $25 and allow members to bring one guest with them. Annual memberships for businesses are $100.00 per year and allow two individuals to attend luncheons each month and each one bring a guest.

All of the proceeds from the membership dues benefit the SCC’s programs, including the Community Grant Program and the Bright Star Award Program for sheriff’s office members.

Beyond this monthly event, the sheriff’s office has many other opportunities for adults and children to participate in. They include: Sheriff’s Citizens Academy, Sheriff’s Teen Citizens Academy, Discovery Day, Explorer Post #900 Program, and Sheriff’s Volunteer Patrol. There is something for everyone. Visit our website, pcsoweb.com, for more details and to register for any of these opportunities.
