Police Management Training. Factors Influencing DWI [Driving While Intoxicated] Arrest: Participant Manual.
Bishop, Edward W.
The problems of alcohol as it affects highway safety is the subject of this manual, which was prepared for a three-day training workshop. The manual is addressed to police command and supervisory personnel and is concerned with increasing the rate of alcohol-related enforcement by making these personnel aware of the many factors that influence a patrolman's arrest decision and by helping them to identify appropriate management actions based on those factors. The foreword and section 1 contain background information which explains how the workshop was developed. Section 2 and appendix A summarize the research studies and results that are the foundation of the training. Section 3 explains the workshop objectives, gives a schedule of the several units that make up the workshop, and tells what is expected of the workshop participant. Other appendixes contain case-study material, special considerations of the controlled drinking demonstration, and a brief description of the chemistry and physiological effects of alcohol. The bibliography lists several sources of information about alcohol and highway safety. (CT)
