Over the holiday weekend several DWI checkpoints were set up across the state of North Carolina. The initial numbers of arrests during those checkpoints are just now starting to be reported. The Jacksonville Police Department recently released how many arrests they made during the DWI campaign that ran from June 28 to July 7. The effort to crack down heavily on DWIs over the holiday weekend was part of a state wide campaign named Operation Firecracker.

The Jacksonville Police Department reported 7 DWI arrests were made as well as one arrest for DWI while under that age of 21. Several other traffic citations were issued including speeding and insurance infractions. Police also captured 6 wanted people during the campaign period.  In total 376 violations were discovered during the enforcement period.
