Police services from across the province have taken part in the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Drug Recognition Expert Program. 

According to a news release from Saskatchewan RCMP, from Jan. 9 to 20 members of the Saskatchewan  RCMP, Regina Police Service, Saskatoon Police Service and Prince Albert Police Service trained in Regina to become Drug Recognition Evaluators as part of that program. A total of 15 police officers completed the intensive two week theory portion of the training; then on Feb. 23 they travelled to the U.S. to complete a week-long practical field evaluation portion of the course. After that they became fully certified to conduct evaluations on suspected drug impaired drivers.
