The Bossier Sheriff’s Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Saturday evening, Sept.18, that will start at 8:00 p.m., and continue to run sometimes early 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, and to increase public awareness of the seriousness of driving while impaired. The Louisiana State Police will assist.
The sobriety checkpoint is being conducted as part of a $14,040 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.
