SFST Notes is an application designed for law enforcement officers who enforce DUI laws. This app allows you to take notes in the field for both standardized and non-standardized field sobriety tasks (FSTs) using easy-to-use buttons and check boxes to make note of FST clues and other indicators of impairment.
By default the three standardized tasks (HGN, 9 Step Walk and Turn, One Leg Stand) are included along with preliminary interview clues. The user has the option to add other FSTs, including Finger-to-Nose, Romberg, Alphabet Recital, Backwards Counting, and a Preliminary Breath Test (PBT). Tasks are organized in an easy-to-use tab format and you can return to each task at any time to include additional clues.
Once you complete your notes, the app will create a basic narrative detailing your observations that you may use and modify as needed for your police report. You have the option of emailing this narrative (an email client such as Google Mail is required) or saving it to your SD card.
Other special features include:
- 30 second timer included for One Leg Stand task
- Ability to account for each specific missed step on the Walk and Turn task
- Start/Stop timer included with Romberg task
Option to display instructions for the 3 standardized FSTs.
Option to create narrative in all CAPS.
Button for adding FSTs added to main tab.
Menu button options removed for future compatibility with Android 4.0
Updated to use older Android theme on Android 4.0 devices due to black text on black background for some users (working on fix).
