PORT MOODY — The Port Moody Police Department has launched a further investigation into potentially flawed approved screening devices, or roadside breathalyzers.
According to a press release from the Port Moody police Thursday, the department and the Office of the Police Complaints Commissioner (OPCC) have received a final investigative report for the matter.
“At this time the Port Moody Police Disciplinary Authority, in accordance with the regulation of the B.C. Police Act, has requested further investigation be conducted,” the release noted.
The release did not note any findings or elaborate on any specifics contained in the report, nor did the department offer details on the next steps in the investigation.
The issue of problems with the approved screening devices surfaced last October, after media outlets suggested there was a flaw in the department’s "process for calibrating approved screening devices."
At the time, the department said it was treating the allegations seriously and called in the OPCC and an outside agency to conduct an investigation.
