Juror Appreciation Week
The week of April 30th through May 6th is National Juror Appreciation Week. The office of the Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller will be marking the occasion to show jurors just how much they are appreciated for taking part in such a fundamental component of our justice system. The Clerk's office summons approximately 74,000 jurors a year which highlights the need to publicly thank all those citizens for their time and dedication towards an important responsibility. Having citizens who truly understand and embrace their civic duty enhances the services rendered to the judicial system.
Jurors will be recognized with a reception held at the St. Petersburg Judicial Building on May 1st with another reception taking place on May 2nd at the Pinellas County Justice Center. The Clerk's office will host refreshments on that day as a token of thanks. Bookmarks and notepads marking this special week will be distributed to jurors as they report for jury service during the week. Certificates of appreciation will also be incorporated to further commemorate the occasion.
