PBT devices provide an estimate of blood alcohol concentration and are an essential tool used in the detection and removal of impaired drivers. The PBT unit can also enable the officer to rule out alcohol as the cause of impairment and determine drugs as a possible cause. The PBT should be a standard tool for each officer; instead there are stations that have none, share one, or have a few shared among many officers. To date, the Trooper Iwaniec Memorial Foundation has donated over 1,200 PBTs throughout the Commonwealth.
Law enforcement officers interested in receiving a PBT are asked to complete the following application.
