WICHITA, Kan. The Wichita Police Department late Saturday night into early Sunday morning is conducting a sobriety checkpoint. The checkpoint starts 11 p.m. Saturday and ends 3 a.m. Sunday.

"Officers will briefly stop motorists to check their driver's license, proof of insurance and seat belt usage," Wichita police say. "Those motorists who are not in compliance or are suspected to be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be detained for further evaluation."

Police did not disclose where they'll have the checkpoint, but say they don't anticipate much delay for the average motorist passing through it.

The WPD says the checkpoint is coordinated and worked in partnership with the Kansas Highway Patrol, Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office, Sedgwick county Emergency Management Services and the Kansas DUI Victim Center.
