POLICE officers on foot, pedal cycles and motorbikes will soon be issued with the latest mini breathalysers to help in the fight against drink-driving.

The States force has just been given the go-ahead by the Home Affairs Minister to buy the new smaller machines.

At the moment, only officers in cars carry breathalysers because the current model, which was introduced ten years ago, is so bulky.

In addition to more officers being able to carry the testers, the new machine is half the price of the old model and just as accurate.

  1. To save a bit of money couldn't they just issue the smaller ones to the foot and bicycle soldiers. The car and motorbike police have plenty of room for the bigger ones. Just a minor cost cutter but at least it would set an example....I'll go back to dreaming now!!!
