WESTBROOK — Police will be cracking down on impaired drivers this summer, thanks to a grant from the Maine Bureau of Highway Safety.

The Westbrook Police Department received $5,000 to pay officers to patrol the city in search of people driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, said Capt. Tom Roth.

Police will be stopping drivers at sobriety checkpoints and conducting roving patrols throughout the city, Roth said.
