SFST Courtroom Challenges

PAAM Traffic Safety Training Program Webinar: 

Pushing Back on SFST Courtroom Challenges

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

12:00 P.M. - 1:30 P.M. EST

The defense bar continues to present sophisticated arguments to have standardized field sobriety test (SFST) evidence excluded in court. In this webinar, we will cover some of the newer and widely used attacks and provide practice pointers on how to avoid lengthy court hearings.  We will also discuss how you can educate peers, the defense bar, judges, and other traffic safety professionals to try to put an end to these challenges.  Last, we will provide tools to help lessen the burden on practitioners.

Presented by Colorado Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor Jennifer Knudsen and Denver Police Department Sergeant Alan Ma.
