The DUI/BUI enforcement initiative was launched to ensure a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July celebration for all.

“While this country’s independence is certainly a cause for celebration, there is never an excuse for drinking and driving,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. Our deputies were on a mission, patrolling Hillsborough County roadways and waterways to ensure drivers and boaters were celebrating safely.

Thank you, Hillsborough County, for choosing to celebrate responsibly.”
