ALL of the classes will be held at the New Jersey State Police Hamilton Headquarters, 1400 Negron Drive Hamilton, NJ 08691. Additional classes will be added as needed. The ARIDE training is a two day 16 hour class. In order to be eligible to attend the training, the students MUST have attended the NJSP Driving While Intoxicated / Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Course. There is no cost for attending the class and we will provide the manuals and other materials.

ARIDE is intended to bridge the gap between the SFST and DEC/DRE programs by providing officers with general knowledge related to drug impairment and by promoting the use of DREs in states that have the DEC Program. One of the more significant aspects of ARIDE is the required student demonstration of the SFST proficiency requirement. The ARIDE program stresses the importance of the signs and symptoms of the seven drug categories. This course will train law enforcement officers to observe, identify and articulate the signs of impairment related to drugs, alcohol, or a combination of both, in order to reduce the number of impaired driving incidents as well as crashes which result in serious injuries and fatalities. This course will educate other criminal justice professionals (prosecutors, toxicologists, judges, etc.) to understand the signs of impairment related to drugs, alcohol, or a combination of both, to enable them to effectively work with law enforcement in order to reduce the number of impaired driving incidents as well as crashes which result in serious injuries and fatalities.

The following summarizes the sessions contained in the ARIDE course:

  • Introduction and Overview of Drugs and Highway Safety
  • SFST Update, Review and Proficiency Examination
  • Observations of Eyes and other Sobriety Tests to Detect Alcohol and Drug Impairment
  • Seven Drug Categories
