DOVER, NJ (Morris County) – Morris County authorities will be conducting a driving while intoxicated checkpoint for the beginning of December.
Law enforcement personnel from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and the Dover Police Department will be conducting the checkpoint at a not-to-be-disclosed location.
DWI checkpoints are funded by grants received by the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety to conduct checkpoints in conjunction with municipal police departments throughout Morris County. The grant is in effect until the end of September 2023.
The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office has coordinated sobriety checks in the past throughout various municipalities in Morris County, and will continue to do so in the future with advance public notice.
“Regrettably, impaired, and drunk driving continues to pose a serious threat and harm to our citizens and now, co-joined with all too many cases of distracted driving because of cell phones, these types of operations to deter such behavior remain useful and necessary to protect the public,” prosecutor’s office said.
