Expecting increased alcohol use and drivers operating under the effects of drugs, police will be conducting increased DUI enforcement this weekend. That enforcement will continue through the summer months. Police will be conducting Roving Patrols and Sobriety Checkpoints on area roadways looking for impaired drivers.

The North Central Regional DUI Enforcement program equips, funds and coordinates the municipal police DUI enforcement in the following counties: Northumberland, Schuylkill, Berks, Snyder, Union, Columbia, Montour, Berks, Monroe and Pike.

Sobriety Checkpoints and Roving Patrols are funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
