The Mineral County Sheriff’s Office hosted an Advanced Roadside Impairment Driving Enforcement (A.R.I.D.E.) class on Feb. 21-22 at the Mineral County Library.
The A.R.I.D.E. class was instructed by The Department of Public Safety, Nevada Highway Patrol Division. The training is designed to enhance an officers ability to observe, identify and articulate the signs of impairment related to drugs, alcohol or combination of both, in order to reduce the number of impaired driving incidents as well as crashes which result in serious injuries and fatalities.
All patrol personnel from the Mineral County Sheriff’s Office as well as several officers from surrounding areas participated in the training.
A statement from Sheriff Randy Adams reads, “We here at the Mineral County Sheriff’s Office as well as our surrounding law enforcement agencies are very concerned with the safety of our citizens out on the roadways. We were very fortunate to be able to host this class here in Mineral County and will continue to work with our partners in law enforcement to get our deputies the best training available.”
