Local women’s football team, the Fighting Fillies, dedicated their most recent match against the Valley Vipers to members of the public safety community. The Fillies play full contact football in a national league of more than 50 teams. Declaring May 12th as Public Safety Day, the Fillies offered half-price admission to badge carrying members of parole/probation, police, fire, ambulance/EMT, and the sheriff’s office. During halftime, members of the public safety community were asked to stand and be publicly applauded for their efforts. Members of the Department of Community Justice (DCJ) staff participated both on and off the field. Tori Lopez, a Juvenile Court Counselor in DCJ’s Juvenile Services Division, helped lead the Fillies to victory with a final score of 42-0.
