DOVER, Del.- Police in Delaware made 12 DUI arrests last weekend as part of the 2013 Checkpoint Strikeforce DUI prevention campaign.

According to the state Office of Highway Safety, after last weekend's checkpoints, a total of 22 arrests have been made as a part of this campaign. Statewide, there have been more than 2,200 DUI arrests this year.

In addition to the DUI arrests, Delaware law enforcement agencies apprehended two wanted individuals, made two drug arrests, issued four seat belt citations, and issued 34 citations for various other traffic violations.

Two sobriety checkpoints are scheduled to take place this weekend:  

Friday, July 19

  • Wilmington (New Castle County DUI Task Force)- checkpoint

Saturday, July 20

  • Milford (Milford Police Department)- checkpoint  

Checkpoint Strikeforce is a regional sobriety checkpoint campaign aimed at arresting DUI offenders, and uses high visibility enforcement to deter those who would otherwise choose to drink and drive. The campaign, a six-month-long effort running through New Year's Eve, involves setting up weekly DUI checkpoints statewide.
