Some of my clients have heard the term, drug recognition expert, and want to know what that means – especially if one is involved in their case. When you’re stopped by an officer who thinks you’re under the influence of, or impaired by, drugs – whether or not they are prescribed for you – he or she may not have the training or experience to make that call on their own. In that case, they can call for the assistance of a drug recognition expert – a police officer who has undergone specific training and certification through New York State as and works for a police agency. That drug recognition expert can indicate whether, at the time of your evaluation, if you are impaired by drugs.
