National Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors (TSRP) – Traffic Tuesday Webinar Series
Tuesday, January 19, 2021, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EST
Category: Training

Through this ongoing TSRP training initiative, the next scheduled webinar will take place on January 19, 2021, 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. (EST) and will feature a presentation on “The Opioid Epidemic & Impaired Driving” by Nicholas Tiscione, M.S., D-ABFT-FT

Description:

The U.S. federal government declared a national public health emergency in October 2017 to address the national opioid crisis. This was a result of the unprecedented number of deaths due to drug overdoses in 2015 and 2016 with a majority of those involving opioids. While drug overdose deaths due to the opioid epidemic have been extensively covered, relatively little has been reported on the impact to drug impaired driving. Data on the rise of fentanyl and other opioids in impaired driving casework will be presented along with a review of toxicology analysis, opioid impairment, case reports and the poly-pharmacy commonly observed with these cases.
