Sobriety checkpoint set for next week

From Local Sources

TELL CITY — Indiana State Police at the Jasper Post plan to conduct a sobriety checkpoint Friday, Aug. 23, at an undisclosed location within Perry County.

Drivers encountering the checkpoint will need to have licenses and vehicle registrations handy during stops that police say should be brief unless further investigation is necessary.

The purpose of the checkpoint will be to remove impaired drivers from roadways.

Police are mandated by law to announce checkpoints in advance after a United States Supreme Court ruling that they are constitutionally permissible.
