Several times a year the agency will conduct road check points in various locations of the city. These check points are conducted by the agency in an effort to keep the roadways safe. Often time the road checks are targeted at impaired drivers as a deterrent to stop those under the influence of alcohol and other substances from driving. These check points often times lead to arrests for a number of offenses other than DUI. The agency requests that drivers who are briefly delayed as a result of these checks understand the departments initiatives in keeping all individuals safe in their travels.
