Seymour police to conduct DWI checkpoint

SEYMOUR - The Seymour Police Department will conduct a DWI sobriety checkpoint along the Route 67 corridor beginning Friday at 7 p.m. and ending at 3 a.m. Saturday.
Officers will be checking for operators of motor vehicles who may be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. 

The checkpoint is partially funded from a grant the department received from the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation Comprehensive DUI Enforcement Program. 

In addition, the grant also helps pay for additional officers to patrol the streets throughout the year looking for drivers who may be operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to Lt. Paul Satkowski.
