 Drug Impaired Driving Enforcement Training Opportunities Available

Impaired driving is one of the most serious problems on the roads today. As more states legalize recreational and medical marijuana, more law enforcement personnel must be trained in Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) and as Drug Recognition Experts (DRE). Training has proven to be an effective tool in the fight against impaired driving. Increasing the availability of ARIDE and DRE training to officers, prosecutors, and the judiciary is an important next step. Contracts will be awarded to eligible U.S. law enforcement agencies and organizations to deliver regional training. Read more.

The IACP has also released many new resources:

On November 12, NHTSA published a Request for Information (RFI) on available or late-stage technology under development for impaired driving detection and mitigation.  The RFI’s goal is to better understand the state of emerging technologies, particularly those targeting alcohol-impaired driving.  The notice requests information about the capabilities, limitations, and maturity of impaired driving technologies that are being researched, developed, or marketed.

Please share this notice with your members and stakeholders to encourage the broadest possible response to this request. The RFI can be found here:  https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/11/12/2020-24951/request-for-information-impaired-driving-technologies


The State of Recruitment: A Crisis for Law Enforcement

Law enforcement agencies across the United States are struggling to recruit and hire police officers. Though agency-specific needs exist depending on size or locale, the difficulty with recruitment is a significant problem that is broadly affecting the field of law enforcement. This IACP resource provides an overview of recruitment by the numbers, discusses the factors driving the recruitment crisis and the impact on the profession, and identifies innovative approaches to recruitment.
