This video compilation shows Florida deputies carrying out a series of arrests amid an increased wave of local shootings.
The images were obtained by Newsflash from the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, along with a statement that said: “Amid a wave of shootings in the Spring Hill area of DeLand, law enforcement is out in force to stop the violence.
“The increased law enforcement presence resulted in dozens of traffic stops and close to 40 arrests by the Sheriff’s Office over a six-day period.”
The footage shows deputies patrolling around the local area looking for suspects and informing citizens of their new “zero-tolerance policy” in a bid to take the criminals off the streets.
The Sheriff’s Office said its deputies have joined forces with the DeLand Police Department as they continue to work together to “put an end to the outbreak of violence.”
“Residents will notice a heavy law enforcement presence, frequent traffic stops and zero tolerance for violations,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood asked citizens for their cooperation in making the local community a safer place for everyone.
