Victoria Police officers faked more than 250,000 roadside breath tests
An internal audit has revealed that Victoria Police officers faked more than 250,000 roadside breath tests. The phony tests were an apparent attempt by officers to meet quotas. The police are already paying the price, with the state's Transport Accident Commission suspending $4 million in road safety funding.
In the video snippet below, Andatech's Thi Siva demonstrates how police could have faked the breath test results. Thi uses a similar law enforcement grade breathalyser, the Andatech Prodigy S (not the model used by VIC Police) to demonstrate taking breath tests consecutively one after the other, explaining how the time stamps on each test can indicate that tests are being taken too quickly.
