WRPD to Set Up Safety Check Points Friday Night

Release date: December 10, 2014
Event: Operation Safe Streets
Date/Time: Friday, December 12, 2014 7PM-4AM

As part of Georgia’s Zero Tolerance campaign, the Warner Robins Police Department will be out in full force Friday, December 12, 2014 in an effort to deter and reduce the number of impaired drivers.

We will have several safety check points set up in town, as well as officers stationed around each check point. 

Our efforts are in connection with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety’s push to make the streets safer this holiday season. Last year 161 people lost their lives on Georgia roadways during the holiday season. Of those, 18 crashes involved impaired drivers. In addition, over thirteen thousand people were injured in motor vehicle accidents.
