What is a DRE?

A DRE is a law enforcement officer who is considered a drug recognition expert. A DRE has undergone special training that allows him or her to determine whether or not a person is under the influence of drugs, and more specifically what type of drug or drugs that person may be under the influence of. They’re considered an expert witness in court and are subject to all the arguments and challenges that can be made against any expert witness.
