Albany -- With the long Labor Day holiday weekend here, prosecutors gave South Georgia law enforcers refresher training on state D-U-I laws and Field Sobriety Testing.

Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges brought instructors from the Prosecuting Attorney's Council and the Georgia Public Safety Training Center in Forsyth to work with officers from several South Georgia law enforcement agencies.

They gave the officers instructions on getting drunk drivers off the roads and making sure their charges stand up in court. Dougherty Chief Assistant D.A. Gregory Edwards said "DUI is a very complicated area. Ironically it is one of the areas where you have a lot of changes in statutes and a lot of developments through case law in the courts."

Prosecutors say the training is part of Georgia's continuing crack down on drunk drivers.
