The Cherokee Indian Police Department (CIPD) will be participating in the North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program’s Booze It & Lose It Holiday Campaign. This campaign kicked off on Friday, Dec. 11 and will run through Sunday, Jan. 4, 2016. CIPD will hold checkpoints across the Qualla Boundary during this multi-week initiative.
The “Booze It & Lose It” campaign zeros in on drunken drivers with innovative and extensive anti-driving while impaired (DWI) enforcement and education. Sobriety checkpoints are continually set up in all North Carolina counties as part of the state’s highly effective anti-drunk driving campaign.
