Sharing Drug Recognition Expert Resources

Drug Recognition Experts (DRE) are law enforcement officers trained and certified through their State DRE programs and credentialed through the International Drug Evaluation and Classification Program to recognize impairment in drivers under the influence of drugs including alcohol. This project was undertaken to identify how State and local law enforcement agencies have successfully shared DRE resources. The project included a web-based literature review, a review of a DRE Facebook group, review of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) DRE section forum, and interviews with statewide and local agency DRE coordinators. The resulting report summarizes key aspects of successfully sharing DRE resources. States and jurisdictions of all sizes and geographic localities can use this report to enhance existing DRE callout programs or implement new programs that involve sharing DREs across agencies.
