The Lowell District of the Indiana State Police in conjunction with the Northern Porter County Traffic Safety Partnership will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint during the late evening hours in Porter County on Friday, March 17th, 2017. The checkpoint is in conjunction with Operation Pull Over Blitz #89, which runs from March 3th through March 26, 2017.
Drivers that encounter a check point will be required to produce a valid license and registration. Motorists that are not impaired can expect only short delays of 2-3 minutes while passing through the checkpoint. If all information is correct and there is no other reason to be detained, they will be released.
Law Enforcement encourages all motorists to call 911, or the closest Indiana State Police Post, or police department when they observe another motorist that may be impaired. Be prepared to give a description of the vehicle, location and direction of travel.
The Indiana State Police and the Northern Porter County Traffic Safety Partnership are committed to traffic safety and will continue to conduct saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints to apprehend impaired drivers and to deter others from drinking and driving.
