Our DUI Unit is comprised of former DUI/DRE officers and have proven expert status in evaluation of the DUI process, procedures and testimony
A drug recognition expert or drug recognition evaluator (DRE) is a police officer trained to recognize impairment in drivers under the influence of drugs other than, or in addition to, alcohol. Our Experts are former DRE and DUI trained and are considered experts in the Courts of Law.
All DRE’s follow the same 12 step procedure called a Drug Influence Evaluation (DIE), to determine which category of drugs is causing the driver to be impaired. The DIE testing done by DRE officers is said to be scientific. This claim is critical to the admission of DRE expert testimony in criminal trials. The DRE Student Manual identifies three scientific studies as being those that validate DRE testing
