Last Tuesday trick-or-treaters dispersed across East Texas going door-to-door ringing doorbells and collecting as much candy as their plastic pumpkin buckets could hold. Then they hoped their parents wouldn't raid their stash of candy for their favorites before the next morning!

While all the trick-or-treating was happening, law enforcement officers throughout Gregg County were on patrol making sure kids were able to enjoy themselves while they had a great time. Long after Halloween, law enforcement is doing that same thing - patrolling our streets to make them safer.

Now that Halloween is behind us we are all looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas and everything that the holidays bring. There will be plenty of food, time with family and friends, and celebrations of all kinds along with gifts and beautiful lights and decorations.

One thing that we all need to be hyper-vigilant about this time of the year is celebrating with alcohol. We should be hyper-vigilant all year because alcohol injures and kills so many Texans each year. If you are hosting a party, please make sure your guests do not leave your home or party while under the influence of alcohol.

If you drink at a holiday gathering or party, KNOW YOUR LIMIT and DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE.

Doing so could have tragic results for you, an innocent family, or both. Law enforcement will not hesitate to initiate a traffic stop if you show signs of driving under the influence. If you are caught doing so, you could face severe legal consequences, including:

  • fines
  • license suspension
  • mandatory alcohol education programs
  • community service
  • jail time

In addition, your insurance rates will increase, you'll have a criminal record and in some cases, an ignition interlock device may be placed on your vehicle.

Looking back at previous posts of those facing felony charges in Gregg, Smith and other Texas counties, driving under the influence is clearly still a huge problem in our area and state.
