Another reason not to drink and drive.  The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office will be conducting a roving DWI Checkpoint somewhere in the parish this week.  The following is a statement released by the CPSO:

In a continuing effort to keep the citizens of Calcasieu Parish safe, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a roving DWI detail and a DWI checkpoint this week.

A roving DWI detail is when there are extra deputies, in addition to regular scheduled patrol deputies, patrolling the parish strictly looking for individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics.

Roving details and DWI checkpoints 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 these details are being done.

The DWI roving detail is funded by Project KNOW, a grant awarded to the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury Office of Juvenile Justice Service to target underage drinking.   The checkpoint is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.

Buckle up, be safe, and designate a driver this week and weekend!!!
