The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is going to be conducting a DWI sobriety checkpoint this Friday night, July 12thth somewhere in the parish. It is an ongoing effort to keep the highways and roadways safe.

Here is the information passed down to us from the Calcasieu parish Sheriff's Office.

In a continuing effort to keep the citizens of Calcasieu Parish safe, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a DWI checkpoint at an undisclosed location in the parish on Friday, July 12. 

This checkpoint will target individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics.  They have proven to be very 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.

Louisiana State Police will also be participating in this checkpoint.  It is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
