DWI checkpoint planned for August in Mount Olive Twp, prosecutor says

MOUNT OLIVE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – Morris County authorities will be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers for the month of August in Mount Olive Township.

Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp, Prosecutor’s Office Chief of Investigations Stephen Wilson, and Mount Olive Police Chief Stephen Beecher announce the implementation of a joint Driving While Intoxicated checkpoint at not-to-be-disclosed location in Mount Olive for the month of August.

Law enforcement personnel from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and the Mount Olive Police Department will conduct the checkpoint.

DWI checkpoints are funded by grants received by the Prosecutor’s Office from the State Division of Highway Traffic Safety to establish checkpoints in cooperation with municipal police departments throughout Morris County.

The Prosecutor’s Office has set up sobriety checks in the past two years in Chester, Denville, Jefferson, Mount Olive, Randolph, Roxbury, Washington Township, and most recently in Parsippany, where a checkpoint will remain until the end of this month.

Further DWI checkpoint dates and locations will be announced in the future.
