Nashville PD will have new alcohol detection

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, GA (WALB) -

The Nashville Police Department will buy an Intoxilyzer 9000 breath alcohol testing system with an $8,000 grant from the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS).  

State law says agencies to upgrade their current drunk/impaired driving – breath alcohol test machines by the end of next year.  The GBI says that the Intoxilyzer 9000 is the best machine for the job.  

Police Chief Chuck Edwards said the city is very grateful for the grant which pays for the full cost of the new system.    

While delivery and installation may take 90 days, several NPD officers have already completed the required operator certification training on the new system at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center in Forsyth, GA.
