    • The Reasonable Suspicion Process
      • Addresses the five essential components of the reasonable suspicion process: observation, confirmation, documentation, confrontation, and testing.

      • Additional information on documentation requirements is provided.
    • Scenario 2
      • Scenario 2 tracks the five essential elements when a supervisor witnesses a driver dropping what appears to be marijuana. The driver denies that the marijuana is his, becomes belligerent, and refuses to be tested.
      • Additional information on the consequences of refusing to take a test is provided.
    • Common Behavioral Indicators
      • A substance abuse professional describes some typical observable indications that a person may be isusing alcohol or using drugs, and how important these observations are to completing required documentation.
    • Confrontation Techniques
      • Replays the confrontation portions of Scenarios 1 and 2, and acknowledges that the confrontation part of the process is often the most difficult.
      • A substance abuse professional talks about the importance of training to help get supervisors comfortable with confrontations, and provides a few ???tips for speaking to the driver about being sent for testing.
