Tulsa Police Department officers complete 10-day training to recognize effects of drugs

Local law enforcement officials are making sure they're "in the know" when it comes to the drugs affecting your community.

Friday, 11 Tulsa Police Department officers just finished a 10-day training class.

They and other officials learned how to spot the effects of various drug substances.

"We've learned through our training that different drugs cause different combinations or factors or different effects on the human body,” said Sgt. Justin Farley of TPD. “And we've been specifically trained to recognize those factors."

Officers then use a 12-step process to determine what drug a suspect is likely on.
