MCSO setting up sobriety checkpoints, DUI patrols

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office will be conducting at least two Sobriety Checkpoints during the remainder of December. Locations for these checkpoints will vary throughout the county.

The Sheriff's Office will also continue saturation patrols and will assist other member agencies of the Western Arizona DUI Task Force in conducting special details and checkpoints in their respective jurisdictions.

"Drunk driving represents a deadly disregard for human life. Vastly too many people suffer tragic injuries and the loss of a loved one as a result of drunk driving. We will be out in force making sure drunk drivers are off the road," said Sheriff Tom Sheahan.

"If we catch you driving impaired, we will arrest you. No exceptions. No excuses."

"Since 1981, every President of the United States has demonstrated the commitment to the prevention of impaired driving by proclaiming December as National Drunk & Drugged Driving (3D) Prevention Month," said Sgt. Don Bischoff, MCSO DUI Task Force Coordinator.
