Jacksonville Beach Mayor Charlie Latham says extra police officers will be out on the beach this Independence day to ensure everyone has a safe time.
"Completely prepared to have some additional folks on station. Myself and the Chief of Police will be out and about as well," said Latham.
Latham says if you're headed out to the beaches to celebrate the 4th of July, bring your manners or pay the consequences.
"For those who don't, we'll be in a position to hold people accountable for their behavior."
He says he doesn't expect any issues on Jax Beach this weekend and all are welcome to enjoy the 4th of July on Jacksonville Beach and enjoy a fireworks show.
