CCSO Bike Rodeos Wrap Up Holiday Break

More than 700 school kids stayed busy and active while learning how to stay safe over the winter holiday break, thanks to the efforts of Collier County Sheriff's Office Youth Relations deputies.

In addition to the Holiday Sports Camp at Golden Gate Middle School and High School Flag Football Tournament at Gulf Coast High School, bike safety rodeos were held for students living in Immokalee, Everglades and East Naples.
