WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (Morris County) – Authorities in Morris County will be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers in Washington Township this weekend.
The Driving While Intoxicated checkpoint is this Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28 at a not-to-be-disclosed location in Washington Township, according to Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp, Prosecutor’s Office Chief of Investigations John Speirs, and Washington Township Chief of Police Jeffrey Almer.
Law enforcement personnel from the Prosecutor’s Office and Washington Township Police will conduct the checkpoint, authorities said.
It is a result of a grant the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office received from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety to conduct DWI checkpoints at various locations throughout Morris County. The DWI Enforcement Grant is designed to establish checkpoints in cooperation with municipal police departments in the county, authorities said.
The Prosecutor’s Office set up a sobriety check area in Parsippany in June, and in Denville, Mount Olive, Randolph and Roxbury in 2015.
