We hope everyone enjoyed their July 4th holiday this week! A special thanks to the residents of Liberty City for being extra careful this year, HCDPS personnel responded to fewer fireworks related incidents and DUI related accidents from last year's holiday. Great job staying safe Liberty City!
So far this holiday enforcement period (July 1-July 12) HCFD paramedics responded to 14 cases of people being injured by fireworks, and HCSO Deputies issued 341 citations, 94 for seat belt violations, and made 19 DUI arrests; 4 of those were more than twice the legal limit of alcohol content and 2 were underage drivers.
All residents are reminded that increased law enforcement presence and zero tolerance enforcement throughout the county will continue through July 12th, so remember to drink responsibly and always wear your seat belts!
