BEAUMONT – The California Highway Patrol San Gorgonio Pass Area will be deploying a DUI checkpoint in an undisclosed location of the Hemet and San Jacinto Valley area, 9 p.m. to 3a.m., Saturday, July 29.
The sobriety checkpoint will be conducted by numerous California Highway Patrol officers who are highly trained in the detection of alcohol- and drug-impaired drivers. Officers will also be equipped with hand held breath testing devices which provide an accurate measure of blood-alcohol concentration of suspected drunk drivers. Offenders will be processed at the checkpoint and booked at either the Southwest Detention Facility or the Larry D. Smith Detention Facility.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
