The Criminal Justice Institute hosted an intoxication training seminar for local law enforcement officers.
At the International Technology, Education and Commerce Center in Brownsville, over 30 officers from the Valley and even Brooks County took part in this first training of its kind south of San Antonio. Officials who hosted the seminar say this is a vital part of training for law enforcement officers. Instructors dosed several police officers with alcohol in order to conduct sobriety training and live applications with an Intoxilyzer instrument that measures blood alcohol levels.
