About the HGpeN

This video demonstrates the use of the HGpeN Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus tool.

The HGpeN was designed, developed and patented with input from SFST / DRE law enforcement professionals, prosecutors and defense attorneys. After several years of research & development followed up with intensive field testing, we have a product for the law enforcement officer that is not only simple to use, but reliable.

I've had mine for almost a month now and I love it. It's user friendly, the design is flawless, and it just looks good. Having a tool that times your HGN allows you to concentrate more on the eyes to get a true observation. I'm looking forward to my first trial and showing it to the defense attorney when he's grilling me about properly doing HGN. As the DUI Enforcement Coordinator for my agency, I'm highly recommending this tool to the rest of the my guys & gals. I've played with different roadside tools and this is the best, plain & simple.

The purpose of the HGpeN is to provide a standardized instrument to Law Enforcement for the HGN test battery. NHTSA has stated “Officers do not have standardized instruments with which to make precise measurements in the field”. The HGpeN solves that problem by implementing patented technology based on NHTSA guidelines that takes the guesswork out of properly administering the HGN test battery.

In 2012, there were 1,171,935 people arrested in the US for DWI/DUI. According to NHTSA, there were 10,322 drunk driving fatalities in 2012-compared to 9,865 in 2011. Providing law enforcement with the tools they need to accurately identify intoxicated/impaired drivers is a top priority for MADD and NHTSA. The HGpeN improves officer testing, assists in accurately identifying intoxicated drivers, improves courtroom testimony/convictions and also reduces overtime costs; but most importantly, it can help save lives.

ASSEMBLED IN THE USA

We are proud the HGpeN is assembled in the USA and compliant with “Buy American Provisions/Recovery and Reinvestment Act” provisions.

At HGpeN, quality is not only a mindset, but also a way of life. We employ strict procedures and maintain control of quality throughout every step of the process. We employ a three-stage system to ensure quality control is applied in each stage of our operation.

Stage one of the process is to inspect all incoming components prior to assembly.

Stage two governs quality during the assembly process to detect any problems that may arise as a result of assembly. At this stage we perform inspections on assembled and in-process assembled units.

Stage three is our Outgoing Quality Assurance. This is the final process before products ship to customers. Specific tasks include: Perform visual and functional inspection of each HGpeN and if any issues are discovered, submit failure analysis reports and alert vendors.

At HGpeN, we strive to provide law enforcement with customer service that is second to none.
