Join hundreds of dedicated professionals from federal, state, county, local, and tribal agencies in Nashville, Tennessee, August 13-15, for the Annual IACP Training Conference on Drugs, Alcohol, and Impaired Driving. Check back soon for more information regarding registration and accommodations. 



The IACP DRE Section has hosted this annual training conference since 1995. This training conference provides certified drug recognition experts, physicians, toxicologists, prosecutors, and other traffic safety professionals with a forum in which to share information, best practices and lessons learned in law enforcement drug recognition settings. Though the technology and practices have changed and are constantly evolving, the conference provides consistent training, professional development, and a global forum for drug recognition experts and others with a professional interest on a broad array of new and emerging issues. 

The annual training conference features a mix of plenary sessions and concurrent workshops that are designed to keep attendees up to date on the latest practice and science of drug recognition. This year, topics will include the traffic safety implications of ending marijuana prohibition, the use of Oral Fluid Testing for DUID, and improving DRE evaluation and report writing, among many others. Networking events enable conference attendees to meet new colleagues and establish a professional rapport that often extends well beyond the event.

This event is not open to the general public. Attendance is open to drug recognition experts, physicians, prosecutors, toxicologists, sworn officers, first responders, and civilian employees of public safety and government agencies. Public safety includes offices of police, sheriffs, EMS, fire service, hazmat, and park rangers from federal, state, city, county, campus, and tribal agencies.

Credentials required at check in.
