EPD announced it will have 6 checkpoints in 2007. They are usually on U.S. 101 when it turns into Broadway and splits into 4th and 5th streets in town. They also have held checkpoints on small streets in which only a couple dozen people passed through. They have also held them on Mrytle. Remember that the tallest building in Humboldt County is the jail and these small town cops love to show their power.
