New Ambassador Patrols hit the Trail

FLT renewed its commitment to sponsoring Ambassador Patrols along The Legacy Trail and Venetian Waterway at a 4 December 2014 orientation seminar held at the Nokomis Park Community Center. About 15 new Ambassadors participated. Deputy Cathy Duff of the Sarasota Sheriff’s office provided a law enforcement perspective, while Sarasota County employees Vicki French, Brenda Canales, and Ed Wolfenbarger explained the County volunteer application process, required background checks, reporting aspects, patrol duties and responsibilities. Patrollers will offer helpful advice to trail users, report potential law enforcement concerns to the Sheriff’s office, and maintenance needs to the County Parks office. Patrollers completing the volunteer application process received a high visibility Ambassador Patrol vest to wear while on patrol. See the Trail Ambassadors tab on the left for more information.
