Welcome Spring- Message from the Sheriff
As winter comes to a close and we welcome spring, we remember that spring is a great time in our community. A new baseball season begins, spring break is approaching, and graduation draws near for our students. We celebrate these good times in our community.
We would like to pass along some information regarding Spring Break. For several years, we have had an opportunity to interact with college students from all over the country. This year we want to encourage those visiting our state and those far and near to do so responsibly and have a good time. However, if you possess alcohol while under the age of 21 or violate any other Arkansas law during your visit, you will be arrested and transported to jail.
We also want to remind you that with the warmer weather, children may be playing near our county roads. Please take extra caution and slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods. And remember, children learn by watching us. If you're traveling with a child, please model good driving habits, including:
- Wear your seat belts.
- Obey speed limits.
- Teach them why it's important to slow near schools and neighborhoods.
- Don't text while driving.
- Make sure children are in the correct car seat.

Thank you for keeping our roads and our citizens safe, and we look forward to the great times that spring will bring!
