BRENTWOOD - Suffolk police are training on ways to detect drunken boaters ahead of the summer season.

Civilian volunteers intentionally drank too much today so new officers could practice giving DWI and BWI field sobriety tests.

State Sen. Charles Fuschillo is awaiting passage of two BWI bills in Albany that would raise penalties for drunken boating and punish BWI boat operators if they have a child on board.

All four BWI test subjects were supervised and driven home after the training session.
