Drunk Driving Charges Up 37 Per Cent

The Saint John Police Force has been cracking down on drug impaired driving in the past few months, and for good reason. Half of the front line officers on the Saint John Police Force have been trained in a new Drug Recognition Expertise program. An officer with the program says this means Saint John will have one of the only forces in the country with all front line officers trained in Drug Recognition.

Since the training, drunk driving charges are up 37 per cent. Program training is expected to be complete by the end of the fall.
