BSO HEEDS PRESIDENT'S CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
With a rich history of helping others, many within the BSO family are in the lead of President Bush’s appeal for Americans to volunteer for worthy causes.
During the President’s State of the Union address Tuesday night, he asked every American to pitch in and help make our nation a better place to live. He announced plans to increase the existing AmeriCorps and Senior Corps, double the size of the Peace Corps, and put them all under the leadership of the newly created USA Freedom Corps.
Already helping to make America and Broward County better places to live, are deputies, detectives, secretaries, clerks, and countless others who donate their hours, their dollars, their knowledge, their hearts and souls to help others.
Volunteers like Deputy Rich Tarrant who coaches Dania Beach area kids in sports and School Resource Officer Vic Thompson who spends his own time –and often his own money- taking disadvantaged children on field trips. There’s also Lt. Robin Larson, a mentor for a Blanch Ely High School student, and Deputy Kevin Bolling who, as a volunteer for the courts, checks up on the welfare of children whose families are in distress.
Too many individuals to name from the BSO family help in a myriad of other ways. From blood donations to the annual Toys for Tots and Teens toy drive and giveaway to the Special Olympics Florida Law Enforcement Torch Run, the Broward Sheriff's Office is here to help.
