State Police.

Massachusetts State Police will be operating a sobriety checkpoint this week at an undisclosed location in Suffolk County.

The checkpoint will operate sometime between Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8.

“The purpose is to further educate the motoring public and strengthen the public’s awareness to the need of detecting and removing those motorists who operate under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs from our roadways,” Colonel Timothy P. Alben, superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, said in a press release.

Alben noted that, “The selection of vehicles will not be arbitrary, safety will be assured, and any inconveniences to motorists will be minimized with advance notice to reduce fear and anxiety.”
