Walton County to take aggressive stand during Spring Break

Published: Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 12:53 PM.

A deputy will be placed in Seascape again, a place that has become a spring break hotspot, according to Gray.

"We will be focusing on the west end and the Whale's Tail," he said. "That's where they like to go. Sometimes we write 160 citations a day."

And if arrests are made, those being arrested can look forward to seeing a judge who will also be taking an aggressive stance against underage drinking.

"Word will get out that we are not going to put up with their nonsense," said Lt. Keith Chamblee, who is commander over the west end.

Traffic and parking have also become perpetual problems.

During spring break deputies will be posted at the intersection of U.S. Highways 331S and 98 to help with traffic flow. In order to do this, overtime is being offered to all deputies, said Gray.

"We get thousands of calls about traffic at that intersection," he said.
