By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Dozens of law enforcers took part in a road check Friday night as we head into a busy holiday week.
Local law enforcers from 12 counties joined the State Patrol on Martin Luther King, Junior Drive in South Albany.
They searched vehicles for drugs, conducted field sobriety checks, and arrested wanted people.
It's part of the Southwest Georgia Traffic Enforcement Network which moves from county to county each month for concentrated road checks.
"We'd like to do them more often, but now there's a manpower shortage, when we come together like this we have the manpower to stop a multitude of vehicles," Lt. Tom Jackson, Dougherty County Police.
The group moved from MLK to Radium Springs Road and Holly Drive and within the last hour had arrested a dozen people.
