Operation Dry Spring: A Success

Florida Sheriffs Association and local sheriff's representing Okaloosa, Walton, Bay and Escambia County presented the results on their five-week program, Operation Dry Spring, held from March 4 to April 7. Efforts from 35 Sheriff's offices across the state of Florida contributed to the success. In the end, results yielded more than 5,000 arrests, 8,500 grams of narcotics seized and 4,000 business checks conducted.

One of top-netting counties was Walton County with more than 1,000 arrests.

"I think we were successful because we had a zero tolerance," said Maj. AJ Smith, Walton County Sheriff’s Office. "We were hoping a message would go out and I think it did."
