Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE)
16 hour instruction in Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) is intended to assist law enforcement officers to enhance proficiency in detecting, apprehending, testing and prosecuting impaired drivers.
Upon successful completion, participants will be able to recognize that an individual may be under the influence of a drug or drugs, other than alcohol, or under the combined influence of alcohol and other drugs, or suffering from some injury or illness that produces signs similar to alcohol/drug impairment.
ARIDE bridges the gap between Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) and the roles and responsibilities of the Drug Recognition Expert (DRE). This course does not certify an officer as a DRE. For those interested in becoming a DRE, this course is required.
