Sheriff Knight is inviting residents to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office's 2nd Annual Open House!

Join SCSO for a free, family-friendly event with food, refreshments, music, and demonstrations. Members of the agency's SWAT and Emergency Response teams, Mounted Patrol, K-9 and Aviation units among others, will display special equipment offering attendees an inside look at the Special Operations Bureau. The Human Resources and Emergency Operations bureaus will offer information about career opportunities and the agency's Animal Services Section will bring adoptable animals.

This event will coincide with the agency's third annual holiday toy drive benefiting the 12th Judicial Circuit of Florida's Guardian ad Litem program. The first 500 people to donate a new, unwrapped toy or gift card, will receive a free sheriff's office t-shirt. Clothing and stuffed animals will not be accepted. T-shirts are limited to one per person, per gift.

Parking is limited so attendees are encouraged to carpool if possible. For more information, contact the agency's Community Affairs Office at 941.861.4005.
