DUI arrests are fewer than ever claims Fort Lauderdale DUI Defense Attorney Bill Direnzo. This isn’t due to fewer impaired drivers but rather the reduction of enforcement officers by BSO.
See the recent episode of “State of Arrest” where Broward County DUI task force is discussed.
DUI Task for dwindles to fewer than 4 officers
The number of DUI Task force enforcement police officers in the jurisdiction of Broward County has been reduced to 4 officers, possibly even fewer according to Criminal Defense Layer William Moore. This is a fraction of how many special DUI trained investigators are employed by other jurisdictions of similar size and population. The few police investigators assigned to Broward’s DUI task force appear to be new officers as most of the veteran 20 to 30 year special driving unit detectives have retired.
DUI investigations take longer than the investigation of other offenses
The time that it takes to investigate, arrest and book a suspect who has been accused of driving under the influence far exceeds the length of time generally needed to investigate Domestic Violence, Possession of Drugs, Shoplifiting or even violent crimes claimed Attorney Moore.
DUI only a misdemeanor
Despite being a mere misdemeanor, Driving Under the Influence investigations require highly trained officers less they risk being thrown out of court. Skilled DUI lawyers have a arsenal of legal challenges that can cause a DUI to get tossed out of court due to the slightest deviation from the law that governs the manner in which evidence is to be collected in such criminal offenses.
