Traffic Officers Get Training in Using Breathalyzers

Traffic officers are now being trained to use breathalyzers to help combat drunk driving. Four officers were in Denver, Colorado where they completed a training course and returned to train other law enforcement officers. The training included the use of reasonable suspicion to determine the sobriety of a motorist, proper operation and calibration of the equipment, as well as policies and procedure for its use.  The Government of Belize says law enforcement officers and the staff of other organizations will be equipped to aid in the reduction and deterrence of driving under the influence of alcohol.  The funds for the training were provided under the Second Road Safety Project through the Caribbean Development Bank.
