JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Officials with the Hinds County Sheriff's Department say you can expect to see an increased police presence during the Easter holiday weekend. 

Sheriff Victor Mason says additional safety checkpoints will be set up all over the county through Sunday. The sheriff's department will be on the lookout for all offenders, but particularly those who are drinking and driving.

"We will have increased aggressive patrols. DUI vans, our patrolmen know what to look for and not just in the city but even on the interstate so we'll be out there," says Sheriff Mason. 

If you're driving, make sure you have your driver's license and insurance information with you.

Also, buckle up and designate a driver if you plan to drink.
