Sobriety Checkpoint/Saturation Patrol Support
CCADC partners with local law enforcement to support sobriety checkpoints and/or saturation patrols on a monthly basis.
An excerpt from The Community Guide: "Publicized sobriety checkpoint programs are a form of high visibility enforcement where law enforcement officers systematically stop drivers to assess their degree of alcohol impairment. Media efforts to publicize the enforcement activity are an integral part of these programs. The program goal is to reduce alcohol-impaired driving by increasing the public's perceived risk of arrest while also arresting alcohol-impaired drivers identified at checkpoints."
