The Ohio State Highway Patrol announced Thursday, Sept. 4 that an OVI checkpoint will be held in Brown County Friday evening.

The OVI checkpoint, funded by federal grant funds, is planned to deter and intercept impaired drivers.

“State troopers make on average 25,000 OVI arrests each year in an attempt to combat these dangerous drivers. OVI checkpoints are designed to not only deter impaired driving, but to proactively remove these dangerous drivers from our roadways”, Lieutenant Randy McElfresh, commander of the Georgetown Post, said.

The location of the checkpoint will be announced Friday morning.
