The Raleigh County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting increased patrols and sobriety checkpoints during the month of September.
The focus of these patrols will be to identify impaired drivers under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Officers will also be looking for revoked and/or suspended drivers and any traffic and highway safety-related violations of law.
This grant is awarded through the West Virginia Commission on Drunk Driving Prevention.
“If you drink and drive, you will go to jail,” Cpl. J. L. Redden said.
