FROM THE STOP TO THE REPORT: AN OVERVIEW OF A PROPER OUI INVESTIGATION

Gone are the days when an OUI arrest consisted of only a stop, field sobriety tests, and a chemical test. With the complications of prescription and illicit drug use, the legalization of recreational marijuana, and complicated case law precedents involving chemical testing, there are many, complicated hurdles for law enforcement. This class reviews the entire OUI investigation from the time of initial contact until the time for testimony under oath.

Topics include: the initial stop, roadside interviews, first response to fatal crashes, chemical testing, testifying in court and BMV. This course puts a significant focus on drug impairment (especially Cannabis and Opiates).

Specifically, attendees will review:

  • The Elements of Maine’s OUI Law
  • Operational Impairment
  • Field Sobriety Testing
  • Arrest Decision
  • Chemical Testing
  • OUI Drugs
  • Report Writing/ Testifying
  • Fundamental Caselaw
  • First On-scene Fatal Crash Investigation

Sponsored by the Maine Bureau of Highway Safety, this class will review impaired driving investigations including: the initial stop, chemical testing, testifying in court and BMV. This course puts a significant focus on drug impairment (especially Cannabis and Opiates).
