DWI Checkpoint in Calcasieu Parish, Saturday, April 22
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office (CPSO) continues there effort to keep citizens in our parish safe. On Saturday, April 22, 2017 there will be a DWI checkpoint at an undisclosed location within the parish.
The checkpoint will target persons driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics. These checkpoints have in the past "proven effective in discouraging citizens from driving while impaired, and people are more likely to designate a driver when they know sobriety checkpoints are being conducted,” said a CPSO press release.
The Lake Charles City Police Department and the Louisiana State Police will assist with this checkpoint, funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
