IACP Training Conference on Drugs, Alcohol, and Impaired Driving (DAID)


The IACP Training Conference on Drugs, Alcohol, and Impaired Driving (DAID) is the largest training conference for drug recognition experts and traffic enforcement specialists. This conference provides law enforcement, prosecutors, traffic safety professionals, and physicians & toxicologists providing expertise in support of the prosecution of impaired drivers, with a forum in which to share information, countermeasures, and best practices for reducing drug- and alcohol-impaired driving and improving road safety.

Proper social distancing should be maintained at all times during the in-person event and activities. In accordance with CDC guidelines, DAID attendance this year may be limited for the health and safety of our attendees.
