The Turlock Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint at an undisclosed location in Turlock on Sunday evening. This checkpoint is paid for through a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety. This grant pays for additional DUI and traffic enforcement.
The Avoid the 12 DUI Task Force will also be deploying special roving DUI patrols on Sunday, February 5th in several communities throughout the area looking to stop and arrest drivers who are impaired by alcohol or drugs.
