An investigation of a program that trains police officers in how to spot symptoms of drug use has ended without charges. The investigation was launched this spring after claims that police had offered or given citizens illegal drugs. A Hutchinson police officer participating in the program had allegedly given marijuana to a potential subject, but prosecutors say that there wasn’t enough evidence to bring any charges. The Department of Public Safety has been asked to make several changes in the drug recognition program, however, including more clearly laying out the guidelines to officers being trained.
