Azusa police get $34,000 grant to fund DUI checkpoints

AZUSA — The Azusa Police Department has received a $34,000 to fund sobriety checkpoints, officials announced Tuesday.
The grant was provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Azusa police Lt. Paul Dennis said in a written statement.
“The special DUI checkpoint grant is to assist in efforts to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol and other drug-related collisions in the community,” Dennis said. “The grant activities will specifically target impaired driving offenders as well as educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving.”
In addition to hunting for drunken drivers at the checkpoints, specially trained officers will be on-hand whenever possible to evaluate drivers suspected of being under the influence of drugs.
