Course Details

Drug use is changing at a rapid pace. In the past, drug investigations centered around meth, heroin, cocaine, marijuana and PCP. Now, officers are tasked with investigating cases involving fentanyl and other synthetic opiates, bath salts, spice and anything else that a chemist in China or Mexico can come up with to thwart American laws. This class will also cover all aspects of Fentanyl, from its history, legal issues, safety protocols for officers, investigators, undercover personnel and probation officers. You will also learn what protective posture you should use for possession cases, sales and lab incidents. When it comes to marijuana, officers are dealing with high potency cannabis products like BHO, edibles and tinctures. This course covers all of the drugs that keep you puzzled. When you’re done, you’ll know exactly what you need to know to keep up with these crazy trends.
