  • the three suggestions included in the policy were: 
    Testing all applicants and recruits for drug or narcotics use 
     Testing current employees when performance difficulties or documentation indicates a potential drug problem
    Testing current employees when they are involved in the use of excessive force or when they suffer or cause an on-duty injury.

    all of these policies were created to make sure that employees' performances are not compromised due to the destructive nature of the narcotics.
