The California Highway Patrol San Gorgonio Pass Area will be deploying a DUI checkpoint in an undisclosed location of the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley area from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m., Friday, Jan. 15.

The sobriety checkpoint will be conducted by numerous CHP Officers who are highly trained in the detection of alcohol and / or drug impaired drivers. Officers will also be equipped with hand held breath testing devices which provide an accurate measure of blood-alcohol concentration of suspected drunk drivers.

Offenders will be processed at the checkpoint and booked at either the Southwest Detention Facility or the Larry D Smith Detention Facility.
