Bossier deputies checking for drivers under the influence this weekend

730

The Bossier Sheriff’s Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Saturday evening, May 25, starting at 10:00 p.m., and running into Sunday morning at an undisclosed location in Bossier Parish.

The goal of the checkpoint is to identify and remove impaired drivers from the road before they cause injury or death to themselves or others, as well as increase public awareness to the seriousness of driving while impaired.  Bossier City Police Department, Louisiana State Police, and Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office will assist.

The sobriety checkpoint is being conducted as part of a grant awarded to the Bossier Sheriff’s Office from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission for DWI Enforcement.

Motorists are encouraged to report impaired drivers to law enforcement at any time in support of “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”  The Bossier Sheriff’s Office can be reached 24 hours a day at 318-965-2203.
