Sam Houston State University's (SHSU) Impaired Driving Initiatives Office is offering a new staff-development tool (a 6-hour training program) to assist you in doing just that!

" Traffic safety to help reduce the number of alcohol and drug-related fatalities and injuries on Texas highways.
" How to identify in a probationer or parolee, and/or other individuals encountered during home and office visits, the signs and symptoms of impairment, including alcohol, illicit drugs and prescription drug use.
" How to develop or improve a resource guide for drug policies, programs and practices within your organization.
