Livingston to see Labor Day checkpoints and patrols

Local News

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office – in conjunction with several other local law enforcement agencies – will conduct sobriety checkpoints in Livingston Parish through the Labor Day holiday.

Drivers can also expect saturation patrols. This is all part of the ‘Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over’ campaign which runs through September 2, 2019. This is being done in an effort to protect our citizens from those who choose to drink and drive.

Specifics will not be released in advance.

Grant monies, made available through a federal grant administered by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission, will fund overtime pay for the officers involved.

Motorists are urged to drive carefully and comply with all Louisiana Traffic regulations.
