The Washington State Patrol Toxicology Laboratory program aids in the reduction of backlogged DUI casework and the corresponding lengthy turnaround times to complete toxicology testing of both DUI and traffic fatality cases.
Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety
Supports national efforts to advance passive alcohol detection systems in vehicle manufacturing. This will be accomplished by piloting passive alcohol detection systems in Washington State’s fleet vehicles and educating the public on the benefits of this technology.
High-Visibility Saturation Patrols
Heightened law enforcement patrols focused on impaired driving offenses while conducting outreach and education on the dangers of impaired driving.
Enforcement of Drug-Impaired Driving
Sustained Enforcement and Adjudications
The Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) program is a proven strategy endorsed and promoted by International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
DUI Offender Monitoring
Provides electronic monitoring services to DUI offenders who are indigent and thus cannot afford to pay for these services on their own. These services provide real time monitoring of a DUI offender’s alcohol, enhances supervision and accountability, and allows the participants to have continuity in employment and maintain family relations. The greater interaction and involvement between courts and participants leads to better outcomes for the participants, including reduced alcohol use and impaired driving.
Addresses the increase in impaired driving related fatalities and aligns with WTSC’s strategic goals and objectives to develop collaborative and effective programs and services. Court monitoring enhances transparency and accountability within the justice system reducing the likelihood of repeat DUI offenses.
