A Letter from the Sheriff: WALTON COUNTY PREPARING FOR SPRING BREAK

Staff Writer

Dear College Student,

We hope your 2016 spring semester is off to a great start! As we inch toward the month of

March, the Walton County Sheriff’s Office would like to pass along some information regarding

Spring Break.

 For some years now we have had the opportunity to interact with college students from all over the country while they visit the Emerald Coast.

 This year we want to encourage those visiting Walton County, Florida to do so responsibly and to have a good time. However, if you possess alcohol while under the age of 21 or violate any other Florida law during your visit, you will be arrested and taken to jail.

Also, keep in mind our jail is located approximately 40 miles from the coast. Those breaking the law will be charged, transported, and booked into the Walton County Jail in DeFuniak Springs, Florida. This entire process could make for a very long day.

We want you to enjoy yourselves, have fun, and make great memories. If that’s your intention while visiting our county, you won’t be seeing much of us. However, if your intention is to break the law or impede on anyone else’s good time you will be dealt with accordingly.

Sincerely,

Sheriff Michael Adkinson, Jr.
