Sevierville Police Department Officer Graduates from Drug Recognition Expert School

Posted 05-03-18.

Sevierville Police Department Officer Justin Armstrong recently graduated from Drug Recognition Expert school. A drug recognition expert (DRE) is a police officer trained to recognize impairment in drivers under the influence of drugs other than, or in addition to, alcohol.

Officers trained as DREs are frequently called upon to differentiate between drug influence and medical and/or mental disorders. Their highly-specialized training provides an extremely valuable tool for combating the adverse impact of drug and alcohol impaired driving in our communities.
