Practice Safety When Dealing With Dangerous Drugs

Even tiny airborne particles of some drugs can be dangerous. Students who attend this free course, Dealing with Dangerous Drugs During Patrol Stops, will review what to do when they encounter drugs during patrol stops, how to preserve crime scenes after a drug overdose, and what action to take in other situations. In addition, students will become more familiar with drug-activity indicators, the safest methods to handle toxic materials, and the protocol for lab submissions used by the Ohio Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI), particularly in cases involving heroin, fentanyl, and carfentanil.

NOTE: This course is limited to sworn law enforcement only.
