In an effort to keep our streets safe, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office will conduct a DWI checkpoint this Friday night February 21st.

In a continuing effort to keep the citizens of Calcasieu Parish safe, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a DWI checkpoint and a seatbelt checkpoint in the parish on Friday, February 21.  These checkpoints will target individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics; as well as, people who are not wearing their seatbelt.  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. This checkpoint is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
