DWI Checkpoints to Begin Monday
Morris County police departments to patrol 'heavily traveled roadways.'
Police departments throughout Morris County will be participating in a series of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) checkpoints and patrols from Dec. 12 through Dec. 18 in conjunction with the Morris County Police Chief's Association.
"These details will be held on heavily traveled roadways all throughout Morris County, where arrests and crashes involving intoxicated drivers are numerous," said Chief Christopher Wagner, president of the assocation. "It will involve the utilization of over 50 police officers."
"It is the hope of the Morris County Police Chief’s Association that all motorists heed the advice not to drink and drive, especially during the holiday season," he added in a press release.
The majority of funding for the checkpoint details will be paid for by the New Jersey Highway Traffic Safety Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over grant.
