The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office and the Redding Police Department under the STEP Grant will conduct a DUI and driver’s license checkpoint today, within Shasta County. The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office does not announce the time or location of checkpoints, even on the day of the checkpoint.

Motorists entering the checkpoint can expect to see traffic control patterns, warning signs, and officers on the roadway contacting drivers.  These officers will be screening for signs of intoxication and checking driver licenses.  Drivers will be delayed only momentarily as they pass through the checkpoint.  Drivers can assist in the process by having their driver license out and ready to show to an officer.

The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office and the Redding Police Department encourages everyone to immediately report any suspected drunk driver you see on the roadway by calling 911.

For further information contact Sergeant Logan Stonehouse at 530-245-6096.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
