The NY State STOP-DWI Foundation, Inc., through funding from the NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee is sponsoring regional trainings to benefit local STOP-DWI efforts in New York State. These seminars are free of charge and are designed help education professionals to prevent impaired driving.
The Recognizing Impaired Persons course teaches attendees the signs and symptoms of probable alcohol misuse, and the signs and symptoms of probable drug use. This four hour course provides attendees with the basic knowledge and skills needed to identify, document, and communicate their observations of persons who appear to be impaired. It will cover the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators associated with probable alcohol misuse and/or drug use. In addition, attendees will learn the most commonly abused drug categories, current trends, and common methods of use.
This training series will feature Gary Bulinski, president of Traffic Safety Research LLC., who has more than twenty-four years of experience in law enforcement and has spent a majority of his time detecting alcohol and drug impaired persons and conducting crash investigations. Mr. Bulinski is a now retired, former nationally certified Drug Recognition Expert Instructor as recognized by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
