2013 National Drug Control Strategy Supports DRE Training

Office of National Drug Control Policy

On Wednesday, April 24, the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy released its 2013 National Drug Control Strategy.

Among the goals to be attained by 2015 is to “Reduce the prevalence of drugged driving by 10 percent.”

Stating that "Preventing drugged driving must become a national priority on par with preventing drunk driving", the strategy supports increased training to law enforcement on identifying drugged drivers.

"Equipping our Nation’s law enforcement officers with the best possible training is an integral part of reducing drugged driving crashes...During 2013, the Administration will continue to raise awareness for ARIDE training through national and local outreach opportunities. Additionally, the Administration continues to recognize the importance of officers who are trained and certified as DREs."
