Austin Police Department Receives New Portable Breath Tests With Help From Prosecutor's Office Scott County Prosecutor Chris Owens was happy to be able to help the Austin Police Department purchase new portable breath test machines. The police department was in dire need of these new machines, often times referred to as PBTs. There are now eight (8) new PBTs owned by the Austin Police Department. The prosecutor's office was able to purchase four (4) of these new PBTs for the department. The prosecutor 's office was able to make this purchase using funds obtained through drug forfeitures. When money can be traced as proceeds from drug activity, the prosecutor's office goes through the court system to have that money forfeited by the drug offender. Once that money is forfeited, it can be used for law enforcement purposes. These portable breath tests will be used by officers in the field in cases in which people are expected to be intoxicated. These are used in cases such as Public Intoxication and Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated. Austin Police Chief Robert Gudgel and Scott County Prosecutor Chris Owens show off one of the new portable breath tests that have been received by the department. The department received 8 new machines and 4 of those were purchased for the police department by the prosecutor's office. The purchase was made using money that has been taken from drug dealers through a court process called asset forfeiture.
