With schools back in session on August 10, Pasco Sheriff’s Office reminds our community that student safety is everyone’s responsibility. Recognizing and reporting suspicious activity helps keep schools safe. Early reporting provides important information that can stop or solve a crime. PSO investigates all threats we’re made aware of and threats have consequences, even when they aren’t real. Together, we can create a safe learning environment for Pasco’s students.

Always Stop for School Buses

With the new school year, our community will see more traffic, school buses, bike riders and pedestrians commuting near schools. Eliminate distractions, such as phones, while traveling, especially in school zones. Follow posted speed limits, which are reduced in school zones, and obey traffic laws and directions. Pedestrians should always cross at crosswalks, where drivers expect pedestrians to cross. Wait for the Crossing Guard or signal to indicate it’s safe to cross. Passing a stopped school bus can result in tragedy, so it’s imperative for drivers to obey a bus’s lights and signals. Staying alert is something everyone can do to keep our communities and students safe.

Pasco County offers a diverse workforce, vast job opportunities and a welcoming environment to make it a great location for businesses to call home. The Pasco Sheriff’s Office’s Business Crime Prevention (BCP) program educates businesses on effective ways to reduce the chance of becoming a crime victim, as well as how to respond to suspicious or criminal activity. As more businesses choose to call Pasco home, the Business Crime Prevention program is an important aspect of safety in our community.


When disaster strikes, the Pasco Sheriff’s Office partners with our volunteer Community Response Unit to help those in need. CRU volunteers and businesses donate their time and equipment to provide relief following catastrophic events. Using their skills and experience, CRU volunteers assist with post-disaster activities and relief. It is an honor to work alongside these individuals who answer the call to help when our community needs it most.
