Davenport - The holidays are a great time for us to spend some time getting to know the community and its leaders, and that's exactly what The Ridge Community High School Lady Bolts Basketball team did during their past fall break.

The Lady Bolts spent one of their Thanksgiving break days touring the Sheriff’s Office. The day began at the Central County Jail in Bartow. The Lady Bolts toured the facility with Captain Chambers. After touring the facilities, the team went to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Operations Center, touring the facility and the Emergency Center.

During their visit, the Lady Bolts had the opportunity to learn about the different components of the Sheriff's office that helps keep our county safe. It was by chance that hey had the privilege of meeting Sheriff Grady Judd. During their meeting with Sheriff Judd, the Lady Bolts had an opportunity to ask questions and take selfies.

They wrapped up the day with a short women’s self-defense class, which showed the girls some of the simple ways to protect themselves.

We can't wait to see where the Lady Bolts go next. We will keep you all posted.
