Extra Alabama Law Enforcement During Holiday

Alabama state troopers are stepping up patrols this July 4th holiday.

State troopers and local law enforcement agencies are stepping up patrols during the long Fourth of July holiday weekend.

   Sixty-nine police and sheriff's departments are joining with the state troopers to target drunken drivers and other violators by conducting sobriety checkpoints and additional patrols. Funding from the extra patrols comes from grants awarded by the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs and the state Department of Transportation.
