Sobriety Checkpoint - Gilford

On Friday, August 2, 2013, the New Hampshire State Police, Troop E, conducted a Safety and Sobriety Checkpoint on Route 11 in the Town of Gilford.  During the checkpoint, State Troopers screened a total of 260 vehicles, which yielded 5 arrests.

The New Hampshire State Police is committed to taking an aggressive stance in utilizing safety and Sobriety Checkpoints as a tool to deter, detect, and apprehend persons while driving while intoxicated.  New Hampshire has some of the most aggressive laws in the country to fight the intoxicated driver and we are dedicated to using those tools to their full extent to make sure our citizens and visitors are safe when operating their vehicles on our roadways.
