The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office said it will conduct a DWI checkpoint somewhere in the parish on Saturday.

“This checkpoint will target individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics,” said Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers. “They have proven to be very effective in discouraging citizens from driving while impaired and people are more likely to designate a driver when they know sobriety checkpoints are being conducted.”

Myers said the state and Lake Charles police will participate in the checkpoint, which is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
