ARIDE Classes

Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (A.R.I.D.E) is a 16-hour training course designed for officers that are highly proficient and active in alcohol impaired driving enforcement.  This is advanced training for officers that have completed Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) training to give them additional skills to recognize signs and symptoms of impairment from drugs other than alcohol.
Officers applying to attend the ARIDE course must be currently credentialed in SFST and will be required to first pass a proficiency test demonstrating their skills in conducting the three SFST tests, which are the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Test, Walk and Turn Test and the One Leg Stand Test.  Officers unable to demonstrate acceptable proficiency will not be allowed to complete the training.  ARIDE training, in addition to current SFST Training and Credentialing,  is now a pre-requisite for DRE Training starting with the 2017 DRE Class.

Check back for upcoming dates!
