This weekend, the Westlake City Police is teaming up with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office for a DWI/Seat belt checkpoint.

Here is the latest from the Sheriff's Office.

In a continuing effort to keep the citizens of Calcasieu Parish safe, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Westlake Police Department will be conducting a combination DWI checkpoint and a seatbelt checkpoint at an undisclosed location in the parish this weekend.

This checkpoint will target individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics, which has been 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. The checkpoint will also target people who are not wearing their seatbelt.

This checkpoint is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
