LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Louisville Metro Police Department officers now have a new tool to help get drunk drivers off the streets.

The Louisville Metro Police Foundation donated eight portable breathalyzers to the department.

The breathalyzers, which cost about $400 each, were paid for by a grant from the Jamie Parsley Family Foundation.   

The foundation hopes the donation will help improve the prosecution of drunk drivers, as well as decrease alcohol related injuries and accidents.
