Officers will learn the observable signs of seven major drug categories, medical conditions that mimic drug influence, and what they will see when they encounter drivers under the influence of specific drugs.  This course may be used as ARIDE refresher.

To host a course, contact:
Sgt. Tyler Milless, SFST-DRE Coordinator

Occupant Protection Usage & Enforcement (OPUE) - 3 POST credits

This three-hour online training will address seat belt, child restraint and air bag history and development.

Officers will discuss enforcement techniques and requirements.
