Colonel Mark F. Delaney, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, has announced that a “Sobriety Checkpoint” will be implemented by the Massachusetts State Police in Suffolk County. This checkpoint is scheduled for Thursday night, September 10, 2009 into Friday, September 11, 2009 and will take place on a Secondary State Highway. Suffolk County is comprised of all of Boston, and the cities of Chelsea and Revere, Massachusetts.
Many of these roadblocks are part of the nationwide “Over The Limit, Under Arrest” mobilization, for which state and federal grant money is used to fund police overtime, equipment and education. This roadblock coincides with the return of thousands of college students to the Boston area around Labor Day weekend.
