Sobriety Checkpoint

Hammond police will set up a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location. 

HAMMOND — A sobriety checkpoint is planned this weekend in Hammond, police said. 

Starting Friday, Hammond police will be conducting sobriety checkpoints in undisclosed areas of the city.   

Editor Marc Chase interviews Ashley Brian Jones, part of the "Hoosiers We've Lost" project.

Drivers who go through a checkpoint will be asked to provide their driver's license, registration and proof of insurance. Those with no violations will be released immediately in a reasonable amount of time, police said.

The checkpoints are funded by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.
