Wichita police to conduct sobriety checkpoint this weekend


WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Wichita police are conducting a sobriety checkpoint this weekend.

The checkpoint runs from 10:30 p.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday.

Police will stop drivers to check their driver's license, proof of insurance and seat belt usage.

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

"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," Officer Charley Davidson said.

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.
