Female deputies of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department took to social media September 18 to participate in the “Hot Cops Challenge.”

The challenge, showcased across the nation, has shown a positive impact for law enforcement in building relationships with the community.

Sheriff Leon Lott said the female deputies represent the Richland County Sheriff’s Department as trusted public servants, to prevent crime and the fear of crime by providing excellence in law enforcement services, accountability, and connections with the community.
