Heads Up! DUI Checkpoint Friday Night in Walnut Creek

News from the Walnut Creek Police Department

In 2013, the Walnut Creek Police Department launched a partnership with the Center for Human Development aimed at reducing underage drinking.

Several projects have taken place in the past year working towards that goal.

The next project will take place this Friday, June 20 at 9 p.m. when the WCPD will conduct a sobriety checkpoint.

The purpose of the checkpoint is to provide education regarding drinking and driving, as well as reduce the number of impaired drivers within the city limits. 

The sobriety checkpoint will be located on Lawrence Way north of Parkside Drive, near the onramp to Northbound 680. Hours of operation will be from approximately 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. 

WCPD encourages anyone who intends to drink, to make plans to have a “designated driver” or arrange to take a cab ride home. WCPD appreciates everyone’s support and help at making our streets safe from impaired drivers.
