|Tuesday, December 17, 2013|
Additional Mt. Juliet Police Officers will hit the streets on the evening of Friday, Dec. 27 in an effort to curb impaired driving and impaired-related crashes. Sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols will be conducted in the Lebanon Road, Mt. Juliet Road, West Division St, and Belinda Parkway areas that evening. In addition, Mt. Juliet Police will be assisting the Tennessee Highway Patrol in a multi-agency effort to curb impaired driving on New Year’s eve.
“Our goal is simple,” said Mt. Juliet Police Chief James Hambrick. “We want to remove those driving under the influence from the street before they impact others.”
