Tunica County Sheriff's Office to participate in "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over"
Tunica, Miss. - The Tunica County Sheriff's Office will be participating in the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign conducted by the Mississippi Office of Highway Safety. This is a period of high visibility enforcement by law enforcement agencies. This campaign will run now through January 2020.
The campaign urges drivers to "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over," however; that is only the beginning of violations law enforcement officers will be searching for and enforcing. While conducting these saturated patrol shifts, officers will be seeking those driving under the influence, not wearing their seat belts, children not properly situated in child restraint devices, suspended licenses, uninsured motorists, speeding, and reckless driving. Officers will be making arrests and issuing citations when necessary.
The Tunica County Sheriff's Office actively solicits and encourages the cooperation of all citizens to reduce and limit the opportunities for crime, and to assist in bringing justice to those that break the law. The "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign helps the TCSO enforce this principle.
