Kettering Police Beefing Up Patrols on Busy Holiday Weekend
KETTERING -- There are lots of activities in the Miami Valley this holiday weekend and police are beefing up patrols in anticipation that some may be celebrating a little too much.
Kettering Holiday at Home has become a Labor Day tradition but it is just one of many activities going on this weekend. One of the biggest football rivalries also kicks off tonight. Alter High School takes on Kettering Fairmont and there's also Alterfest, one of the Catholic high school's largest fundraiser of the year
Police say they are already beefing up patrols to make sure everyone stays safe and they are going even further by holding OVI checkpoint.
Kettering Police Officer Ron Roberts says the area was selected because of past problems.
"The target is on East Dorothy Lane," Roberts said. "Stats show with OVI arrests, traffic crashes and a lot of complaints on traffic behavior of drivers in this area that prompted us to use the 1000 block of East Dorothy Lane for that."
The OVI checkpoint will be held from 11 p.m. Friday until 3 a.m. Saturday. They will be looking for more than just drunk drivers; they will also be checking for child seat violations and those driving on suspension.
OVI Checkpoint Planned Tonight in Kettering
KETTERING -- The Kettering Police Department, in conjunction with the Montgomery County OVI Task Force, announced today that an OVI checkpoint will be held from 11 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of East Dorothy Lane in Kettering.
Police say the checkpoint will be held in conjunction with nearby saturation patrols, which will "aggressively combat alcohol-related injury and fatal crashes."
Kettering police say the checkpoint often finds suspended drivers, drug offenders, people with warrants for their arrest, and minor traffic and equipment violations.
Officers urge drivers to designate drivers or make other travel arrangements if they plan to drink alcohol.
