Amy Miles Named DRE Ambassador by International Association of Chiefs of Police

In August, WSLH Forensic Toxicology Director Amy Miles was named a DRE Ambassador by the International Association of Chiefs of Police-Drug Recognition Experts Section.

The DRE Ambassador is awarded to an individual who, while never having been certified as a DRE, has made significant contributions to the DECP – Drug Evaluation and Classification (DEC) Program.

DRE’s – drug recognition experts – are law enforcement officers who undergo extensive training to recognize the varying signs of impairment that different drugs can cause in drivers.
