The Coachella Police Department will conduct a DUI/driver’s license checkpoint tonight.

Tonight’s operation will be conducted from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers under the influence will be arrested, according to police. The exact location of the checkpoint was not disclosed.

The operation is funded by state grant money provided by the federal government.
