(This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend)....Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor the fallen soldiers in our history.

It is not to be confused with Veteran's Day, which is a Day to remember and honor those who have served or are serving in the US Military. There will be increased law enforcement patrols during the 3-day weekend. The California Highway Patrol is expected to go into their Maximum Enforcement Period at 6 pm Friday. The MEP will continue until 11:59 Monday night. The MEP is the CHP's Holiday program in which as many officers as possible are assigned to the roadway to keep them as safe as possible. Brawley Police will begin the weekend with a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint set up Friday evening.. Most businesses and government agencies will be closed on Monday, except for emergency services.
