WESTBROOK — Police will be on the look out for drunk drivers this holiday season.

Westbrook police will use a $10,000 grant from the Maine Bureau of Highway Safety to set up sobriety checkpoints and put officers on duty – in marked and unmarked cars – with the sole purpose of seeking out drunk drivers, according to a press release from the department.

The dedicated patrols will continue through the holidays into the new year.
