Drunk Driving Enforcement and Investigations

Charles William Dahlinger

This is a practical manual written for law enforcement officers by a law enforcement officer who has had great success in law enforcement. This manual on drunk driving enforcement is a powerful tool which, when used in conjunction with policies and procedures of your department and the laws of your state, can lead to a much higher success rate in dealing with violations. Also included in this manual is the Guide for Detecting Drunk Drivers at Night from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The overall goal of this book is to aid officers in their investigation by teaching what is referred to as the Four Ds of Drunk Driving Investigation: Detection, Dexterity, Detention, and Detailing. By understanding and utilizing these four basic principles outlined in this manual, officers will be able to improve the total quality of their investigations and convictions in this vital area.
