Law enforcement at the lake undoubtedly gets busier with the onset of the summer season. One area in particular where they see more activity is with recreational drug use. Miller County Sheriff Louie Gregoire says as more people come to the lake looking for a good time, they sometimes take it too far – at least in terms of the legal limits.
Summer weather can also keep officers busy.
Of course you’ll also notice more traffic. That’s one more thing that keeps police busier. All of these categories are expected to be on the rise in just a couple weeks following Memorial Day.
