Wanted: Patient people to be school crossing guards
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is looking for people to fill crossing guard vacancies for the school year, which starts Tuesday.
In addition to helping children cross busy streets safely, guards are responsible for reporting the license numbers of cars that do not slow down near school zones and cars that do not stop when signaled to do so.
Crossing guards fill two shifts per day: 7:10 to 8:25 a.m. and 2 to 2:45 p.m. Guards receive a hat, stop sign, traffic vest and whistle and are trained on site for three days by a supervisor. There is a mandatory yearly training each summer.
For an application, go to hcso.tampa.fl.us.
