User Rating: / 10
Local law enforcement agencies, Sulphur Springs Police Department and Hopkins County Sheriff’s Department, along with Texas Department of Transportation said Tuesday that law enforcement will be out in force during the New Year’s Holiday to help reduce crashes and discourage drunk driving. Police Chief Jay Sanders and Chief Deputy Sheriff Ricky Morgan both say their departments will have extra officers and patrol cars on duty New Year’s Eve and will offer rides home to people who may have celebrated a little too much. “If you get yourself in a situation, you’ve celebrated a little bit too much, with the spirits and you need a ride home, we would rather you call us,” Chief Sanders said. “We would rather give you a ride home than have you try to drive or walk — especially since the weather is supposed be kind of bad that night. We would rather give you a ride home or to a hotel or something than have you try to drive or walk.” If you need a courtesy ride in the city, call the police department dispatch number, 903-885-7602 or, in the county, the sheriff’s department dispatch number, 93-438-4040. “Please don’t call 911,” Chief Sanders said. “It’s not an emergency, just call dispatch and we will get somebody there as quick as we can depending on the call load.”
