Drug Abuse Recognition-Brentwood, CA POST Approved

The Drug Abuse Recognition 24 Hour Course in Brentwood, CA

November 6-8, 2017 POST #2540-22220-17-001

Originally developed in the late 1980’s with a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety, the Drug Abuse Recognition course consists of 24 hours of intensive training on the effects of abusing drugs in the eight major Drug Categories, including alcohol, designer and prescription drugs, and synthetic drugs like Fentanyl. Through lecture, demonstration, practical exercises and testing, students will learn to identify the symptoms of persons suspected of being under the influence and driving while impaired.
Although California has passed many laws that have weakened drug enforcement, this is a critical basic skill for police officers. Identifying people under the influence can enhance their officer safety and can help them conduct more thorough and rock solid DUI cases. This course is California POST Approved.
