Posted

OKEECHOBEE — Law enforcement officers consider the recent DUI checkpoint a success.

The total amounts are from the recent DUI checkpoint that was conducted. Although these may sometimes cause a travel delay, we still see them as tools for keeping our community safe.
Arrests are as follows:
(3) Three DUI's
(2) Two for NO Drivers license
(1) One for an outstanding warrant
.
CITATIONS/WARNINGS
(3) Three written warnings for EXPIRED Tag less than six months
(1) One written warning for No Drivers license upon demand
(13) Thirteen written warnings for Faulty equipment
(8 ) Eight written warnings for Running a stop sign
(4) Four written warnings for Drivers who did not wear seatbelts
(1) One written citation for a Driver not wearing their seatbelt
(1) One written warning for a Passenger no seatbelt
(1) One written warning for Failure to maintain a single lane
(1) One written warning for Improper lane change
(1) One written warning was issued for Avoiding a traffic control device
(1) One written warning for Failure to move over for an emergency vehicle
(1) One citation for Driving without a person 21 or older learners permit
(1) One speeding citation, (5) five written warnings
(1) One written warning for No headlights from sunset to sunrise
(1) One written warning for Impeding the flow traffic flow,
(1) One citation for Possession of an open container
(1) Citation and (2) two warnings for Failure to present vehicle registration
 
This joint operation was operated by (5) five police officers from Chief Donald Hagan at the Okeechobee Police Dept. and (14) fourteen deputies from your Sheriff Noel E. Stephen; in addition, there were two auxiliary deputies and one part-time deputy.
 
As you can see from the citation/warning standpoint, in many cases, education through enforcement (like a written warning) does just as much as a citation to make people aware of infractions.
This is just another example team work with your local agencies in order to educate and enforce, thus keeping ALL of our families safe.
OCSO, OCPD
