On Thursday, April 29, 2010, the Massachusetts State Police announced that it will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Friday, May 7 into Saturday, May 8, 2010. The roadblock will take place during varied hours on a secondary state highway in Norfolk County. Norfolk County is comprised of over a dozen cities and towns, including Quincy, Weymouth, Brookline, Dedham, Needham, Canton, Cohasset, Milton, and Plainville.
The State Police often team up with local law enforcement officers when conducting these sobriety checkpoints. Portable breath testing equipment and mobile facilities for booking arrestees are deployed at the scene. Federal grant funding is often used, as part of the nationwide “over the limit, under arrest” mobilization.
