  • Friday November 22nd               Camden –– DSP- checkpoint
  • Saturday November 23rd            Bear-  DSP &  New Castle County DUI Task Force   – 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.
