The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and Denville Police are joining forces to set up a Driving While Intoxicated checkpoint between August 17 and 18 in Denville.

Prosecutor Robert A. Bianchi announced the implementation of the DWI checkpoint.

He said his office has received a g rant from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety Administration to conduct DWI checkpoints at various locations throughout the county.

The grant, called a “County DWI Enforcement Grant,” is designed to establish checkpoints in cooperation with the municipal police departments at various locations throughout Morris County, Bianchi said.

“The goal of the grant is to cut down on the number of drunk drivers who utilize our roads as well as to prevent crashes that are the direct result from drinking and driving,” Bianchi said.
