DWI checkpoint this month in Roxbury Township, prosecutor says

ROXBURY TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – Morris County authorities will be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers throughout the month of November in Roxbury Township.

Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp, Prosecutor’s Office Chief of Investigations John Speirs, and Roxbury Police Chief Marc Palanchi announced Monday the implementation of a joint driving while intoxicated checkpoint at a not-to-be-disclosed location in Roxbury Township during the month of November.

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

DWI checkpoints result from grants the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office has received from the State Division of Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The DWI Enforcement Grants are designed 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, and Washington Township. Further checkpoint dates and locations will be announced in the future.
