LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — Leon County law enforcement says they want to build stronger bonds with people in the community--and they're putting their words into action.

It's all apart of Hispanic Heritage month.

People came out to the Tallahassee Community College campus on Saturday for the second annual Hispanic Resource festival.

It's a chance for people to get to know deputies, and get familiar with the what the city offers.

One deputy tells us, since Tallahassee is so diverse events like these are needed to get that time with people., face-to-face.

"Tallahassee is full of so many cultures. The Hispanic culture alone is full of different ethnicities and different backgrounds and that's what we're here to celebrate. We just want Tallahassee and Hispanics to know that we're here and to gather together," said Sargent Teresa Howard with the Leon County Sheriff's Office.

Farm share also gave out free bags of food.
