Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office personnel tolerated periodic rain as it hosted over 150 people during the first Fishing with a Deputy event June 8 at Chester Frost Park. During the event, local community children and teenagers fished for free while spending time with HCSO deputies and civilian staff. Many of the youth at the event were fishing for the first time.
The event was designed to help the sheriff’s office to build positive relationships with local youth. The department provided free rod and reels and Fishing League Worldwide pro fisherman Buddy Gross was available to sign autographs and give the budding anglers pointers.
