For the second year in a row, the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is joining McDonald's Good Community Partner Program, a popular community service initiative sponsored by McDonald's of Tampa Bay.

Over the next several months, deputies, public service aides and other agency personnel will recognize children and adults who are caught in random acts of kindness, good deeds or positive community activities with 'Be Our Guest' coupons. The vouchers are good for one free sandwich or happy meal and are redeemable at all local McDonald's restaurants. Appropriate acts might include wearing a seatbelt or bike helmet, looking both ways before crossing the street, or doing a good deed for a stranger.

"Our personnel love getting out and taking part in initiatives like these," said Sheriff Tom Knight. "Opportunities that promote positive relationships and reinforce trust between law enforcement and the public are absolutely invaluable."
