Safety on the roads will be a major priority for the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office during the Labor Day Holiday Weekend. The Sheriff's Traffic Safety and Enforcement Unit will concentrate its efforts on the heavily traveled corridors of US Highways 98 and 85, and all available Deputies will be actively enforcing traffic safety laws throughout Okaloosa County.

Okaloosa County Sheriff Charlie Morris offers some holiday weekend advice:

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office is an active participant in the "You Drink, You Drive, You Lose" traffic safety initiative. Citizens should report apparent impaired, reckless, or dangerous drivers immediately by dialing *DUI, *SO or 9-1-1 from a cellular phone.
