BUNNELL, FL – As we say goodbye to 2023 and welcome the new year, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) would like to remind the community to be safe and not to drive impaired!

Members of FCSO Motor/Traffic Unit will be conducting various enforcement details in high-crash locations and monitoring speeding and aggressive driving behavior. In addition, patrol units dedicated to D.U.I. enforcement will be looking for impaired drivers. The goal for this New Year’s weekend is to reduce and prevent crime opportunities and reduce aggressive and impaired driving so that everyone can celebrate the New Year safely.

“We’d like to wish all of our residents and visitors a very Happy New Year, with safety as our number one priority,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “If you plan to drink, don’t plan to drive. There are many other ways to get home safely. Our deputies will be actively looking for and arresting impaired drivers. You don’t want to start out 2024 in the Green Roof Inn! Driving drunk or high gets you a DUI.”

Remember, if you SEE something, SAY something. Report suspicious activity to the FCSO by calling 386-313-4911 or email TIPS@FlaglerSheriff.com. Happy New Year, Flagler County!
