In addition to the 40 DUI arrests, officers have also apprehended 8 wanted individuals, made 7 drug arrests, issued 12 seat belt citations, and issued 120 citations for various other traffic violations.

DUI checkpoints and enforcement will continue as the National Impaired Driving Crackdown begins Friday August 16th.   Two checkpoints are scheduled to take place this weekend.   They are scheduled for:

Friday August 16th –  Wilmington – (NCCo DUI Task Force)- checkpoint

Saturday August 17th –  Dover- (DSP)- checkpoint

Checkpoint Strikeforce is a regional sobriety checkpoint campaign aimed at arresting DUI offenders, by using high visibility enforcement to deter those who would otherwise choose to drink and drive.  The campaign, a six month long effort running through New Year’s Eve, involves setting up weekly DUI checkpoints statewide.
