COLUMBIA – The Boone County Sheriff's Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint in the county sometime between Tuesday and Sunday.
On the selected day, the checkpoint will begin in the evening and end early the next morning. The Sheriff's Department chose not to release the specific dates in advance.
Sgt. Brian Leer, who will supervise the checkpoint, said the Sheriff's Department has a twofold goal: to identify and remove impaired drivers from the road and to communicate that the police are on the lookout for impaired driving.
Unimpaired motorists should expect minimal delay, and the Sheriff's Department said it wishes to thank them in advance for their patience and cooperation during the event.
Supervising editor is Stephanie Ebbs.
