As winter comes to a close and we welcome spring, we at the Columbia County Sheriff's Office know that spring is normally a great time in our community - a new baseball season begins, spring break is approaching, and graduation draws near for our students. We love celebrating these good times in our community.
With the way things are going and even throughout the rest of the school year, children may be playing outside and possibly near the roads. Please take extra caution and slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods. And remember, children learn by watching us. If you're traveling with a child, please model good driving habits, including:
- Wear your seat belt.
- Obey the speed limit.
- Slow near schools and neighborhoods (and explain why this is important).
- Do not text while driving.
- Make sure children are in the correct car seat.

This spring is starting a little differently than it has in the past, but we hope that your family is able to stay safe and healthy during this time.
