Chief Michael J. Magnant of the Portsmouth Police Department, and Lt. Scott Carr of the New Hampshire State Police Troop A will continue the effort to apprehend drunk drivers in the City of Portsmouth and other seacoast communities by conducting sobriety checkpoints and DUI Hunter Patrols. As a follow-up to last weekend’s successful Checkpoint, another Checkpoint and DUI Hunter Patrols will be scheduled for this upcoming weekend in the Portsmouth area.
Motorists are forewarned that we will make every effort to apprehend drunk drivers and ask that patrons of bars and restaurants in the Seacoast make the right choice: use designated drivers, cabs or call a friend; when you drink and drive you risk your life and put others’ lives in danger.
