On Saturday, May 29, 2021, AZDPS and partners from the Winslow Police Department, Navajo County Sheriff's Office and the Arizona Department of Transportation conducted a DUI checkpoint on SR-87 at milepost 341.8, near Winslow. 🚔🚔
The checkpoint served as a visible deterrent to motorists who might otherwise drive while impaired, while also allowing law enforcement officers to stop and remove impaired drivers from the highway.
This special enforcement effort resulted in a total of 208 traffic stops and 14 arrests, including 8 arrests for DUI.
The checkpoint was spearheaded by District 3's Trooper Curnutte, who has also helped increase enforcement details by the Route 66 D.U.I. Task Force along I-40 from New Mexico to California.
Thank you to all our partners, and to all the law enforcement officers and volunteers who work hard to make a difference on Arizona’s highways! 🛣
