As I said in the last post, I’m in DRE training for a two-week period. Once the training is complete and the certification days come and go, I’ll be officially recognized as a DRE.
What that means is, basically, more work for me. It’s cool, though…another feather in the cap and another line on the CV is a good thing. Plus, taking drunks and dopers off the street and out from behind the wheel makes it more likely I won’t get called out to another fatal crash.
At least that’s my thinking.
I posted the video below on the FB page yesterday, but it’s pretty funny, so I thought I’d throw it here as well.
I just finished up editing the second episode of the upcoming reboot of #TheCrossoverShow podcast and we actually bring up DRE. I’m pretty sure when DRE is the subject of a whole episode, HM and I will get into it about how he thinks cops taking blood pressure is stupid and how I disagree and it’s important information given the totality of the circumstances of a case.
It’ll be epic. Plus, you know we’ll have a beer or two on board, so the irony isn’t lost on either of us.
