Sobriety Checkpoints Set for Arnold, Imperial
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department will be conducting the checkpoints on Wednesday, Feb. 13 in Arnold and on Thursday, Feb. 21 in Imperial.
Sheriff Oliver “Glenn” Boyer announced in a news release that the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department will be conducting sobriety checkpoints on Feb. 13 in Arnold, Feb. 21 in Imperial and March 1, in Eureka.
Sobriety checkpoints increase the opportunity for the apprehension of intoxicated and impaired drivers that would normally escape detection, unless they were observed committing a violation or in a traffic crash, Boyer stated in the news release.
Boyer emphasized that those who attend gatherings where alcohol is consumed, should be responsible and have a sober driver take them home.
