The talented Kristen Dark from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office will be working on putting together the Battle of the Badges DVD for distribution to participants including boxers, sponsors, ring girls, sirens and coordinators. DVDs remaining after distribution will be sold to the public (more info to come). The DVD release is expected in the next 3 months. LIKE the Facebook page for more information.

The Sheriff Hamilton and the Travis County Sheriff’s Office has been proud to host the Travis County Battle of the Badges over the last couple of years. With a new Sheriff on the horizon at the Travis County Sheriff’s Office in 2017 we are not able to commit to hosting the 2017 Battle of the Badges on the new Sheriff’s behalf. We invite any involved agency to take over the reins on the Battle of the Badges and step up to host the 2017 event. The Travis County Sheriff’s Office is willing and able to share all of the tricks of the trade that we have learned over the past two years and open our doors to meet with any interested agencies to continue the charity event!
