A Leesville Police Department officer is helping a Leesville city firefighter get in top shape for an amateur boxing match set Aug. 13 in Monroe.
"Battle of the Badges" will match law enforcement personnel and firefighters against one another as they slug it out with ticket proceeds going to MedCamps of Louisiana, which pays the way to summer camps for children with medical and mental challenges.
Amanda Laurence is one of two local firefighters boxing in the event. Firefighter Daisy Rogers will also compete.
For four-and-a-half weeks, Laurence has been training with Leesville Police Officer Jaclyn Jones, who helps her with cardio and strength training.
Jones is just a few weeks shy of completing coursework to obtain her personal trainer's license. She's helping Laurence for fun, in her spare time. See this full story HERE.
