On May 8, Founding Attorney Robert Gigstad attended a CLE (continuing legal education) seminar on the newest breathalyzer equipment and procedures being used in Missouri and Kansas. The seminar, "Science of Breath Testing in Missouri & Kansas: Procedure and Rules," has held former law enforcement officer and DUI educator Travis Jones.
The "Science of Breath Testing in Missouri & Kansas: Procedure and Rules" seminar was held to provide court practitioners with a comprehensive understanding of how breathalyzers play an essential factor in DUI stops, arrests, and convictions in not just Missouri, but in Kansas, as well. Among the topics covered included:
- Breathalyzer operator training
- Required breathalyzer maintenance
- Proper breathalyzer test administration and procedure
- Breathalyzer manufacturer guidelines
- Description of preliminary breath testing units
