PARSIPPANY — Morris County authorities will be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers during Thanksgiving weekend in Parsippany-Troy Hills.

Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp, Prosecutor’s Office Acting Chief of Investigations Chris Kimker, and Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Chief Andrew Miller announce the implementation of a joint Driving While Intoxicated checkpoint at a not-to-be-disclosed location in Parsippany-Troy Hills on Thanksgiving weekend.

Law enforcement personnel from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and the Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Department will conduct the checkpoint.

DWI checkpoints are funded by grants received by the Prosecutor’s Office from the State Division of Highway Traffic Safety to establish checkpoints in cooperation with municipal police departments throughout Morris County.

The Prosecutor’s Office has set up sobriety checks in the past two years in Chester, Mount Olive, Parsippany, Roxbury, Washington Township and most recently in Morris Plains.

Further DWI checkpoint dates and locations will be announced in the future.
