Q May the board of aldermen establish and adopt a policy on roadside safety checkpoints, which would specify the duration, maximum locations and maximum number of checkpoints performed quarterly?

A No. Any determination concerning the duration of roadside safety checkpoints, maximum number of locations and maximum number of checkpoints performed quarterly would constitute a law enforcement decision and is one to be made by the police chief of the municipality.
