FARMINGTON -- Both Harley and Davidson would have been proud of Davis County sheriff's deputies.

On Tuesday, the Davis County Commission accepted a receivable payment from Scout Location LLC, for security work deputies performed for a June 18-19 and June 21 marketing photo shoot for Harley-Davidson on Antelope Island and the island causeway.

The contract paid deputies $50 per hour per sheriff's deputy needed, officials said.

Davis County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Kevin Fielding said the commercial shoots lasted from sunrise to sundown.

The commercial was arranged through the Davis Area Film Commission, an arm of the Davis Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Some additional print material and rolling footage was also shot in some locations in Ogden and Salt Lake City, said John Wilson, Davis CVB sales manager and film commissioner.

"It looked pretty good while they were out there riding," Wilson said.

The print material will be used as part of a catalog and as marketing materials for Harley-Davidson.

"We were very excited to accommodate them," said Barbara Riddle, Davis CVB president and CEO.

Riddle said she appreciated the support and cooperation the Davis CVB received from the sheriff's office, Davis County Commission and state park officials in making the project
