LEE CO., GA (WALB) - The Lee County Sheriff says it will have extra deputies on patrol for Halloween, and remind drivers to use extra caution.

Lee County as a community has many neighborhoods with young families and children, who are expected to be trick or treating Halloween night.

"So the ones in those neighborhoods with four wheelers pulling trailers with kids and adults on it, let's be a little safer", said Rachals. "Try to stay to the right of the road."

Rachals urges all drivers to use extra caution in neighborhoods Tuesday, and go slow, because excited kids will run out in the road.
