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.
