Sheriff and State Police to Hold Joint Sobriety Checkpoint Tonight

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office will conduct a joint sobriety checkpoint with the Virginia State Police tonight, Friday, June 19, beginning at 10 p.m.

Law enforcement officials around the country have implemented education and enforcement efforts, including sobriety checkpoints, to ensure the roads are safe for all motorists by achieving voluntary compliance with the drinking and driving laws.

In Loudoun County, DUI related crashes decreased 28 percent over the past two years.

"Our enforcement efforts are working," noted Sheriff Mike Chapman. "This decrease in DUI related crashes is evidence that fewer people are getting behind the wheel while intoxicated," he added.

Members of the Sheriff's Office Auxiliary Unit and volunteers from the Loudoun Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) will assist with the checkpoint.
