Checkpoint and Patrols Planned in Cherokee County

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is teaming up with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, Tahlequah Police Department, Cherokee Nation Marshals Service, and the Grand River Damn Authority Police to make sure everyone goes home safe this weekend.

These agencies will set up a sobriety checkpoint on Saturday, June 30 from 5 PM until 7 PM. There will also be high-visibility patrols in the area during this time and throughout the weekend.

"We're not out to keep people from having fun," said Cherokee County Undersheriff Jason Chennault. "We're just trying to make sure that everyone is staying safe and protect those who are having fun."
