Mt. Juliet police plan to increase patrols Monday, joining Wilson County Sheriff’s deputies in an effort to curb impaired driving and related crashes.
Mt. Juliet officers will conduct sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols on Lebanon Road, Mt. Juliet Road, West Division Street and Belinda Parkway.
“We recognize the danger presented to the public by those who make the terrible decision to drive while impaired,” said Mt. Juliet police Chief James Hambrick. “Therefore, officers will concentrate their efforts on motorists who operate a vehicle while impaired.”
Wilson County Sheriff’s deputies will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Monday from 8-11 p.m. on Saundersville Road.
Monday is St. Patrick's Day.
