Kids Get Colorful With CCSO

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office invites area children and teens to share their artistic talent this summer.

Youths who participate in “Get Colorful With CCSO” will select one of two scenes that can be printed from the CCSO website and create a piece of artwork with a safety message. One drawing is of a CCSO deputy and the other is of a CCSO patrol car. On the back of the artwork or a separate sheet participants will write a brief description of what the scene is about.

“Get Colorful With CCSO” is not a competition. Rather, it is an opportunity for the children and teens to share their creativity and partner with CCSO to help keep Collier County a great place and a safe place. Entries may be created using crayons, markers or any other creative materials.

To print one of the scenes go to and click on the “Get Colorful With CCSO” icon.

Completed artwork may be dropped off at any CCSO substation or mailed to:

Collier County Sheriff’s Office Public Affairs Bureau
3319 U.S. 41 E.
Building J.
Naples, Florida 34112-4901

“Get Colorful With CCSO” will run through Aug. 12. At the end of the summer CCSO will share the artwork with the community on its Facebook page,, and its YouTube channel,
