Please join in welcoming TAPD Officers Arnone and Calavano, the force's first Drug Recognition Experts.

DRE police officers are trained to recognize impairment in drivers under the influence of drugs and alcohol. DREs will generally perform a detailed evaluation of an impaired individual and determine the best cause of action. The DRE certification process involves two parts, including comprehensive classroom and field courses.

The Transit Police proudly offer this specialized service to help keep our community safe. If you see our new DRE officers around the Authority, please say hello.
