Elk Grove PD to Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint


The Elk Grove Police Department will be conducting a Sobriety/Driver's License checkpoint on Thursday, April 20th, 2023, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

The checkpoint will focus on removing impaired drivers, as well as unlicensed drivers from the roadways.  Educational materials covering the dangers of driving under the influence will also be handed out to motorists. Funding for the sobriety checkpoint is provided through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.

The public is encouraged to call the Elk Grove Police Department at (916) 714-5111 (non- emergency line) or 911 if they observe impaired drivers on the roadways. 


The Citizens' Academy is a hands on learning experience designed to give you, the citizen, a better understanding of the role and function the Elk Grove Police Department plays in our community. The next Citizen's Academy is scheduled to start in Spring 2023, applications being accepted through January 14.
