The Glendale Police Department, with support from the Peace Officers Association of Los Angeles County (POALAC), is presenting the 16-hour, POST-certified, ARIDE Course on January 29 & 30, 2022.  The ARIDE Program was created to address the gap in training between the Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) and DRE training.

ARIDE provides officers with general knowledge related to drug impairment.  The course will train officers to observe, identify, and articulate the signs of impairment related to drugs, alcohol or a combination of both, in order to reduce the number of impaired drivers and impaired driving related traffic collisions.  The course includes a review and required student demonstration of the SFST.  This course is a pre-requisite to Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) School.  Topics include:

  • SFST Review
  • 11550 H&S
  • Eye Examinations
  • Drug Classification Categories
  • Current Drug Trends
  • Signs & Symptomology
  • Physiology of Drugs
  • Report Writing
  • Courtroom Testimony
  • Drug Combinations
