We are in the middle of the Christmas party season; do your part to make it safe by designating  a non-drinking driver. The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Department will be doing their part to keep our roads safe with another DUI checkpoint.


The checkpoint will be somewhere in Calcasieu Parish this Thursday. Deputies will target those driving under the influence and those not wearing seat belts. The checkpoint is funded by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission. These checkpoints have been very effective in discouraging impaired driving.
