The Brighton Police department will be conducting a DUI checkpoint on Saturday, March 22, 2014. The checkpoint is being made possible by LEAF Grant funds received from the Colorado Department of Transportation.
According to Sergeant Mark Kohn, “Brighton officers see the highest number of DUI arrests on Saturday nights. We want to discourage motorists from driving drunk or high and running the risk of ending up in a situation which can change lives dramatically.”
Brighton officers will be stopping every vehicle which enters the checkpoint. The goal is to cause minimum disruption, while identifying motorists who are intoxicated by alcohol and drugs. All of the officers on-scene are specially trained in detecting intoxicated drivers.
For more information, contact Sgt. Kohn at 303-655-2306.
