The Calvert Beacon reports that on June 12, 28 officers from agencies across the state graduated from the DUI Institute, a training program sponsored by the UMD School of Public Health, Maryland Department of Transportation Highway Safety Office, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

“The DUI Institute provides officers a unique opportunity to improve their skills in report writing and providing court room testimony, including a mock court where they present evidence in front of judges and attorneys,” said Dr. Kenneth Beck, who facilitates the training for the UMD Institute of Advanced Law Enforcement Studies. “Officers who have attended this training report that it has increased their effectiveness in making more impaired driving arrests that lead to a conviction.”
