This is the same training provided to law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania and across the country. Police officers administer SFST testing before making a decision to arrest in the vast majority of cases. Having an attorney who is also certified in SFST testing and can spot mistakes made by police officers that can affect the validity of the testing. Pointing out mistakes that were made with the testing can lead to arguments to have the testing excluded from evidence or may persuade a judge that the arrest was not justified in a particular case.
