Police Officers Conducting Blood Testing in Chandler
Police officers are not phlebotomists — medical professionals who collect minute quantities of blood. Four months of training are involved to become a phlebotomist. In Chandler, Arizona, however, police officers go through five days of training to learn how to collect blood, and they will collect a DUI suspect's blood during a DUI arrest in Chandler. The margin of error is significant for results that could change the course of someone's life.
Poor Training and Blood Testing Can Result in Serious Legal Consequences
Law enforcement officers can make mistakes, particularly when they are performing the duties of a trained phlebotomist. They may choose inappropriate places to perform the blood draw. In fact, in an effort to get an immediate reading, they may choose to conduct a blood test on the street where you have been pulled over.
DUI defense attorney Craig Rosenstein brings firsthand knowledge of the process of blood testing. In addition to his experience with and knowledge of DUI laws, our founder received training in forensic blood and urine analysis.
