Enjoy the summer, and do your research just to be safe!

With the summer season here, many people like to hit the beaches and have barbeques and other outdoor parties. Unfortunately though, with the summer fun, many police departments see an increase in crimes and complaints. Here are a couple websites that can help you be aware of dangerous areas and make sure you are not violating the law. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has a crime map that shows you where and what type of crimes have taken place anywhere in Duval County. Then check out Municode or the city’s website for the city you are in to make sure your barbeque or party is not violating local noise ordinances. These sites are very useful for practicing attorneys as well.
