SEMINARS FOR PROBATION-DIAGNOSIS-REFERRAL PERSONNEL IN ALCOHOL-HIGHWAY SAFETY PROGRAMS
Eight short-term seminars were conducted to train approximately 15-25 alcohol countermeasures personnel at each site. The training package, 'Seminar in Alcohol and Highway Safety: Probation, Diagnosis, Referral and Rehabilitation', which was developed by Indiana University under a previous NHTSA-sponsored contract, was employed to train local personnel in the techniques and procedures for investigating, referring, and controlling drinking drivers according to the nature of their drinking problems. The seminar was provided with reasonable success at eight sites. The objectives, impact, unique features, and participants for each seminar are presented.
