Citizen Police Academy Week 4, Drug Recognition Experts

by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Drugs are everywhere. They are on the streets in Salem, in our schools and in our neighborhoods. Specially trained officers, one of them being Officer Chad Clark, the School Resource Officer at Salem High School are Drug Recognition Experts. This meaning they have attended and completed a two-week, 80-hour drug recognition course. Sgt. Rob Morin of Salem Police Department

who is also certified as a Drug Recognition Expert said officers who take these courses are highly trained and skilled in recognizing drugs and detecting the various types of symptoms that the impairment of the drugs cause. “This is one of the more challenging courses that officers take. It designates these officers as certified experts, but we don’t know everything,” Sgt. Morin said. So what exactly goes into the task of being designated as a drug recognition expert? Officer Chad Clark demonstrated to the Citizen Police Academy class last Tuesday what training for this designation was about and what exactly a Drug Recognition Expert is. “An officer who is to take the courses to become a DRE (Drug Recognition Expert) must already be classified as an officer who has proven expertise in DWI detection and standardized field sobriety testing. The first seven days of DRE school are extremely intense. From there, 12 evaluations are conducted using subjects who are under the influence of various substances,” Officer Clark said.

Sgt. Morin added to

that saying, “During the opinionated evaluations in order to pass the officer’s evaluation of what substance the subject is under the influence of must be proven by a toxicology test done through a urine sample. The drugs you opinionated must show up in that sample in order to pass the evaluations to become a DRE. There is a lot of science involved.” After the courses have been taken the final test alone is at least three to four hours long and some officers do not pass the first time around. The need for Drug Recognition Experts is very real. For years, officers would take impaired drivers into custody, only to let them go because their blood alcohol content was not at an illegal level. Officers began to shy away from making these types of arrests because they did not have reliable methods to test and correctly identify drug use and impairment. In a 1983 study conducted in Los Angeles, DREs correctly identified 95 percent of drug free subjects as unimpaired. In that same study DREs correctly identified 98.7 percent of high- dose impaired subjects as being “highly under the influence” and also correctly identified the substances these subjects were suspected of using 91.7 percent of the time. There are seven categories of drugs: Cannabis (marijuana), Inhalants (anesthetic gases and aerosols), Narcotic Analgesics (heroin, methadone, narcotic prescription drugs), Dissociative Anesthetic (these are substances that can be purchased in stores, saliva, spice, etc.), Hallucinogens (LSD, peyote), Central Nervous System Stimulants (cocaine), and Central Nervous System Depressants (alcohol, barbiturates, tranquilizers). Drug Recognition Experts must be able to identify these substances in the field as well as recognize the various symptoms their impairment causes a person. Having several DREs at Salem Police Department is beneficial to both Salem and towns that do not have a DRE in their agency. DREs can be called out at any time when their expertise is needed.
