On May 18th 2013, Sarasota County SWAT youth participated in a clean-up on Siesta Key Beach. The Riverview High School SWAT club planned and hosted the event, but all SWAT members in Sarasota County were invited to attend. The group collected 7.8 pounds of trash, and much of this consisted of cigarette butts. After cleaning up, the youth had a chance to eat lunch and play on the beach. All those who attended said they would like to make this an annual event.
