Every year, impaired drivers cause thousands of traffic deaths and injuries. Law enforcement officers play a leading role in getting these drivers off our nation’s roads, but must be skilled in detecting impaired drivers and administering the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST’s). The class will include a legal review of issues effecting the enforcement activities focused on DUI enforcement.

This refresher course will assist participants in becoming more proficient in recognizing and interpreting evidence of DUI violations; administering and interpreting the SFSTs; and describing DUI evidence clearly and convincingly both verbally and in written reports.

This five-hour class consists of classroom and hands-on training, which includes practice labs where participants take turns administering the SFST’s. Participants will also view National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and International Association of Chief Police (IACP) approved videos to assess a subject’s impairment and record observations of SFST performance.
