Morris County authorities will be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers overnight this month in Chester.
Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp, Prosecutor’s Office Acting Chief of Investigations Chris Kimker, and Chester Police Department Chief Thomas Williver announce the implementation of a joint Driving While Intoxicated checkpoint at a not-to-be-disclosed location in Chester in early December.
Law enforcement personnel from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and the Chester 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, Morris Plains, Mount Olive, Parsippany, Roxbury, and Washington Township.
Further DWI checkpoint dates and locations will be announced in the future.
