WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — As our area law enforcement continues to take part in Operation Pull Over, WLPD will hold a sobriety checkpoint on Thursday night.

West Lafayette Police Department will hold a sobriety checkpoint in West Lafayette on Thursday, Aug. 28. WLPD decided that was a good date because Purdue students return to classes, and that weekend is the first home game.

Officials said Thursday night has become the start of the weekend for some students and they hope this checkpoint provides a reminder not to drink and drive.

During the check point, officers will be asking to see a driver’s license and vehicle registration while observing for signs of impairment. They said people who are going to be drinking need to have a designated driver, use public transportation or take a taxi.

Officers from the Lafayette Police Department, West Lafayette Police Department, Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Department and Purdue University Police Department are all taking part in Operation Pull Over Blitz.
