Additional Mt. Juliet police officers will be on patrol soon in an effort to curb impaired driving and impaired-related crashes.
“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.”
Police officials said increased patrols are planned for the night of Nov. 1. Sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols will be conducted on Lebanon Road, Mt. Juliet Road, West Division Street and Belinda Parkway.
