The Sheriff's Department wants to remind everyone to do the responsible thing and not drink and drive this holiday season.

As part of the nationwide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign, Sheriff's deputies will be conducting additional DUI patrols from December 16th to January 1st.

The goal of these patrols is to find impaired drivers before they hurt or kill someone.

So far this year, more than 1,400 people have been arrested for DUI by the Sheriff's Department. In 2014, deputies arrested 1,610 people for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

"Let's prevent any tragedies this holiday season," said Sheriff Bill Gore. "Don't drink and drive. One bad decision could change your life forever. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over."
