On December 30th, 2012 the Ventura County Sheriff's Department / Ojai Police Department will be hosting a Multi-Agency DUI Checkpoint called 'Avoid the 14'.  'Avoid the 14' represents the 14 law enforcement agencies in Ventura County who are involved in a grant that the Oxnard Police Department obtained through the Office of Traffic Safety. The grant calls for Multi-Agency cooperation on DUI Checkpoints with the intention of increasing DUI awareness during the holiday season as well as acting as a deterrent to driving while intoxicated.


This DUI Checkpoint will be in operation between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 1:00 A.M. at an undisclosed location in the Ojai Valley.  A variety of officers from multiple agencies in the County will be assisting the Ojai Police Department with this checkpoint.


Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
