YORK-James Robinson, a York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Deputy, recently completed more than 100 hours of academic and practical exercises in order to become certified as a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE). Robinson is the first in the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s office to hold the distinction. Less than 50 law enforcement officers in Virginia hold this certification. The DRE program has been recognized nationally for its success in identifying drug-impaired drivers. Law enforcement officers trained as DREs are utilized when a driver appears to be impaired and police have determined that alcohol is not the cause or the sole cause of impairment.
