Field Sobriety Training Course
Tunica County Sheriff's Office participated in a three day field sobriety training course at the G. W. Henderson Sr., Recreational Center. This course prepares officers and other qualified persons to conduct field sobriety tests for use in DWI/DUI investigations. This training has experienced remarkable success since its inception in the early 1980s.
The field sobriety test is subject to updates and changes based on advances in technology and science. Tunica County Sheriff's Office is committed to being up to date with the most current and correct procedures for conducting field sobriety tests. The test can be revised with contributions from sources in health care, toxicology, jurisprudence, and law enforcement. Modifications are made to improve the quality of instruction and standardization of guidelines for the implementation of field sobriety curriculum.
