Three breathalyzer kits inadequate for police
– Traffic Chief says annual requests are made
Three functioning breathalyzer kits are inadequate for the police, Traffic Chief Superintendent Hugh Denhert has acknowledged, while stating that these much needed pieces of equipment are included in the force’s budget every year, but not procured.
However, the last time the Guyana Police Force (GPF) received these kits whose importance has been underscored in the hundreds of drunk driving cases that police have taken before the court each year, was in 2011. It appears that since then no attempts have been made by the government to replace those that malfunctioned.
