Police volunteer

As one of 34 volunteers with the Clearwater Police Department, Karl Bossung worked for General Motors for 35 years and then as occupational health and safety director at Delphi Corp. serves as the eyes and ears of the department on the beach, on city streets and on the Pinellas Trail. The platoon of volunteers helps with accident scenes and other time-consuming work. “There’s no use having a full-fledged police officer directing traffic,” Bossung said. “We direct traffic and let them go about their work.”
