MORRIS COUNTY — Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll, Chief of Detectives Robert McNally, and Randolph Police Chief Will Harzula have confirmed the establishment of a joint checkpoint for Driving While Intoxicated in Randolph, New Jersey, scheduled for the weekend of July 28-30. The checkpoint will be managed by officials from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and the Randolph Police Department.
DWI checkpoints are funded by grants received by the Prosecutor’s Office from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety to conduct checkpoints with municipal police departments throughout Morris County. The grant is in effect until the end of September 2023.
The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office has coordinated sobriety checks throughout various municipalities in Morris County. It intends to continue to do so in the future with advance public notice. Regrettably, impaired and drunk driving continues to pose a serious threat and harm to our citizens. Now, co-joined with all too many cases of distracted driving because of cell phones, these operations to deter such behavior remain useful and necessary to protect the public.
