Responsibility.org Presents Law Enforcement Phlebotomy Webinar
Responsibility.org presented a Law Enforcement Phlebotomy Webinar on January 27th moderated by Darrin Grondel, Vice President, Government Relations and Traffic Safety, Responsibility.org. Drug and multiple substance impaired driving continues to be a priority with 50.5% of fatally injured drug-positive drivers (with known drug test results) testing positive for two or more drugs. Considering the various challenges of collecting evidence in these cases, a law enforcement phlebotomy program is a practical and reliable way to obtain critical evidence for DUID cases.
We would like to thank our panelists: Jennifer Davidson, Highway Safety Specialist, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA); and Don Marose, Lieutenant (retired) , Minnesota State Police who provided a national perspective on the impacts of multiple substance impaired driving including:
- The NHTSA Law Enforcement Phlebotomy Toolkit: A guide to assist law enforcement agencies with planning and implementing a phlebotomy program
- Successful law enforcement phlebotomy program examples
- A special announcement to support the development of phlebotomy programs
