Berlin police to start DUI enforcement


BERLIN — Berlin police will be conducting a DUI sobriety checkpoint next week as part of the department’s enforcement program.

The department recently received a grant from the Connecticut DOT’s Highway Safety Division to support increased DUI enforcement and detection. The grant will cover 75 percent reimbursement of overtime costs associated with the enforcement.

Officers will target drivers under the influence, but will also enforce any other violations.

The department recently started its seat belt enforcement campaign, Click-It or Ticket, which ends Monday, Nov. 28.

The DUI enforcement will run through Labor Day.

The first DUI checkpoint will be Thursday, Dec. 1, on the Berlin Turnpike south of Deming Road.

Additional checkpoints will be conducted at future dates through the duration of the program.
