Cameron Parish to conduct first ever DWI checkpoint

CAMERON PARISH, LA (KPLC) - Authorities in Cameron Parish will be conducting their first ever DWI checkpoint on Friday.

The checkpoint will be held at a currently undisclosed location somewhere in the parish Friday evening.

It is the first ever checkpoint held in Cameron Parish and is made possible by a grant to the Police Jury that allowed them to purchase equipment for the checkpoints and pay overtime to the deputies involved.

Last month, their deputies worked alongside Calcasieu Parish deputies at checkpoints to develop their procedures.
