The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office is expected to see an increase in drivers his 4th of July Holiday.

In order to help create a safer environment for El Paso County, the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division will provide more patrol units on the streets.

This will help maintain a high visibility of deputies and allow for quicker response times for emergency calls.

The Sheriff’s Office is also aware that citizens like to go out into the county to pop fireworks.

A reminder, County Commissioner’s Court, through Governer Rick Perry’s office, banned the sale, possession, and use of all fireworks in the unincorporated areas of El Paso County.

A violation of the ban is considered a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500.
