Montgomery County Police Cannabis Intoxication Impaired Driving Labs

Posted on January 27, 2023 at 5:36 AM by Harvey Baker

Community Members,

Three University Park Police Officers recently completed the Montgomery County Department of Police’s Cannabis Intoxication Impaired Driving Labs. The innovative training, promotes community engagement, increase citizen participation in understanding police activity, and work to enhance traffic safety while aiming to deter impaired driving.

Cannabis Intoxication Impaired Driving Labs are the first law enforcement-hosted training that address cannabis impaired driving behavior and recognition of cannabis abuse by partnering with medically certified cannabis patients. Volunteer patients will consume cannabis and members of law enforcement will be able to observe real-time impairment. Law enforcement personnel will also have the opportunity to explain how cannabis consumption can negatively affect patients’ abilities to operate motor vehicles safely.

 

This added tool will assist University Park Police in identifying impaired/drugged drivers and enhance traffic safety in and around the Town.

 

Congratulations to Cpl. Dan People, Pfc, Peter Shepard, and Pfc. Lamont Deshields!
