GOAL:  At the completion of this training the experienced officer will be more knowledgeable  concerning all aspects of impaired driving enforcement and prepare for or avoid future defense challenges.

Illinois law enforcement officers receive their initial DUI training from the local training academies.  This training typically involves “DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST”.  This is the only training required by the ILETSB.  Additional training, related to the arrest of the DUI offender, may include the Breath Analysis Operator (BAO) course and drugged driving courses developed by NHTSA.

The detection, arrest and subsequent prosecution of DUI offenders has become extremely complex.  Current training does not reflect changes made by the legislature regarding Implied Consent warnings.  Additionally, many officers are not aware of new curricula provided by NHTSA dealing with the alcohol or drug impaired drivers.  Regrettably, information is not provided to officers concerning new breath technologies, chemical testing and case law.
