WRTEN Meeting and Traffic Safety Checkpoint

Sheriff Tim Pounds and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office hosted the April meeting of the Western Regional Traffic Enforcement Network (WRTEN) last night. After the meeting, several different agencies including the Georgia State Patrol and the Douglasville Police Department conducted a traffic safety checkpoint at the exit ramp of I-20 at Lee Rd. Deputies and officers were primarily looking for impaired drivers, and there were several DUI arrests by the time the safety checkpoint wrapped up. We encourage everyone to designate a sober driver, buckle up, don’t text and drive, and keep it under the speed limit.
