New York City Intoxilyzer Breath Testing Records Now Available Online!May 9, 2015 in DWI, Freedom of Information
All NYPD Intoxilyzer records are now available to the public. Following our lengthy legal battle, Perlmutter & McGuinness, P.C is now exclusively hosting all of the maintenance, repair and calibration records for the Intoxilyzer 5000EN breath testing machines used by the NYPD. We currently have all records from January 2008 to August 2012, and will be adding records through January 2015 soon.
These Intoxilyzer records are searchable by date, precinct, borough, and serial number, and include Field Unit Inspection Reports, “Full Calibration” reports, Calibration Certificates, Instrument Service Repair Worksheets, Service Work Orders, and more. These documents reveal routine malfunctions and catastrophic failures by these antiquated machines, that require frequent returns to the manufacturer for major repair.
States such as Florida and Washington have made these records online for years. Not only has the NYPD opposed the public release of these documents, but all five NYC District Attorneys joined together to try to keep you from seeing these records. After Perlmutter & McGuinness’s victory in the New York State Appellate Court, we can finally bring these records to you.
Check if the history and reliability of the NYPD’s Intoxilyzer machines yourself. What you find will surprise you.
