Drug Interdiction Training

Train in the conduction of highway and rural drug interdiction stops, and preparation of your case for successful prosecution. The law enforcement officer that is assigned to general patrol is the first line of defense against domestic drug transportation. Most think that the drug interdiction should be left to K9 handlers and narcotics detectives, but the best method to intercept illicit drugs and contraband is trained patrol officers. Our instructors will adapt their curriculum to the geographical area you work, as well as the current trends in your area.

Our instructors are both current police officers assigned to a drug interdiction unit. Sgt. Dauberman and Detective Turner have over 20 years combined experience. In that experience, they have served on specialized units that resulted in numerous search warrants, and now serve on a highway interdiction unit.
