From Walton County Sheriff's Office

This is the social media post we don't want to write. The topic we don't want to speak of. Like Voldamort in Harry Potter where everyone just whispers "you know who".

Well, "you know what" is coming this way like a freight train. We're not even going to say "around the corner", because it's too cliche to deserve it. It doesn't have quite the same sense of urgency.

Spring break. It even tastes like vinegar to type it.

Spring break used to be something, as kids, we dreamt about. Heck, bad country singers wrote songs about it. Now, it's like politics. Something none of us can agree on and causes arguments at the dinner table.

This is an affront.

Walton County Sheriff's Office is ramping up. Holding meetings with stakeholders after addressing some of your concerns on Sheriff LIVE.

We've had internal operational meetings and plan to highlight some of the things we are implementing during the coming weeks to you - our constituents. One thing is certain, the green will be seen.

Now that we've skipped over the denial part of the grieving stage, the next is acceptance. "You know what" is coming. But, when?

We've put together a schedule for those who are interested. What we've found is that people want to be in the know. They want to prepare. Like some sort of zombie apocalypse.

What we also know is that "you know what" isn't just college kids driving down packed in like clown cars and pouring out onto the beach like the good 'ol days - if there were any.

We are also heavily interacting with high school-aged kids whose parents bring them while on break and let them wander around and make poor choices in the moments they look up from scrolling Tiktok and Snapchat. Which they do. Don't we all at some point in our lives?

All that to say, we've listed the high school spring break dates as well as the colleges and universities. So, here goes.
