Sacto 9-1-1: Citrus Heights PD plans DUI checkpoint on Friday

The Citrus Heights Police Department will be conducting a DUI checkpoint beginning at 7 p.m. Friday and running to about 3 a.m. on Auburn Boulevard, north of Twin Oaks Avenue.

The checkpoint is one in a series that are being funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, according to a Citrus Heights Police Department news release.

The primary goal of the grant is to stop DUI drivers in Citrus Heights using a high-intensity strike-team format, in hopes of reducing the number of DUI-related deaths and injuries, the release states.

Officers will be checking drivers for signs of impairment and valid driver’s licenses. Vehicles of drivers without a valid driver’s license are subject to tow.
