This year's July Forth Heat Is On Enforcement also marked the beginning of a new program that dedicates checkpoints to DUI victims. The checkpoint held on Friday, June 30th by the Denver Police Department was dedicated to Kristopher Mansfield, a senior airman in the Air Force, who was killed in September 2004 just weeks after returning from duty in Iraq.

During the Denver checkpoint on Friday, 16 of Denver's 49 arrests were made and all drivers who passed through the checkpoint received information about Kris and the dedication.

CDOT and local law enforcement agencies across the state will continue to dedicate checkpoints to local victims as tributes to their lives and reminders about the deadly consequences of impaired driving.
