LAS CRUCES, NM — The Las Cruces Police Department has scheduled at least three sobriety checkpoints and four saturation patrols within city limits for the month of August.

LCPD sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols are intended to reduce and eliminate the number of motorists who drive while intoxicated. Additional enforcement activities may include underage and party patrols.

The Las Cruces Police Department encourages those who plan on consuming alcoholic beverages to use a designated driver – someone who will not be drinking alcoholic beverages – for their transportation needs.

Anyone who needs a safe ride home from 5:30 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Fridays, Saturdays or holidays can take advantage of Project Home, a program sponsored by Dona Ana County and Las Cruces Shuttle and Taxi. One or two people can receive a $5 taxi ride home from anywhere within Dona Ana County. For up to four people the fee is $10. Grant funding pays the balance of transportation charges.
