Friday night, the Franklin Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpointon Hillsboro Road to help stop impaired drivers. Checkpoints are one of the many traffic safety measures the FPD uses to prevent DUI crashes. We ask Franklin drivers to exercise caution and never drive while impaired.
Through grant funding awarded by the Tennessee Highway Safety Office, the FPD is provided with support and resources that help combat impaired driving, including training, equipment, and overtime pay for Franklin Police Officers conducting DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols.
