Glendale police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint overnight Saturday at an undisclosed location in the city.

The grant-funded checkpoint will operate from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. and is the second such operation this month in Glendale.

Officers will be keeping an eye out for motorists who may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and check to make sure they have a valid driver’s license.

The checkpoint’s location is selected based on the highest number of collisions and DUI-related arrests in a certain area, according to the Glendale Police Department.

Earlier this month, police said they arrested six motorists for allegedly driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol at a checkpoint at Glenoaks Boulevard and Spazier Avenue.
