Sobriety Checkpoint Tonight, Friday, Sept. 18

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office has announced that they, along with the Virginia State Police, will conduct a joint sobriety checkpoint tonight, Friday, Sept. 18, beginning shortly after 10 p.m. somewhere in Loudoun County.

Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman noted that DUI related crashes worked by the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office decreased 39 percent between 2012 and 2014.

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

Members of the Loudoun Sheriff's Office Auxiliary Unit and volunteers from the Loudoun Chapter of MADD will assist with the checkpoint.
