New breath tester

Six new high-tech, handheld alcohol breath testers will allow Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies to conduct better preliminary breath testing during traffic stops.

The units, valued at $285 each, display a digital reading of the blood alcohol level from breath samples. They are financed through a traffic safety grant award, Chief Deputy Roland Kramer said Monday.

The breath testers have been provided by the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety as part of ongoing efforts to prevent underage drinking and alcohol related traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities.

“The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office was awarded the new instruments to assist in identifying potential minor in possession and driving under the influence violators. These instruments provide the latest technology in preliminary breath testing,” Highway Safety Administrator Fred Zwonechek said.
