Stevensville, MD (March 20, 2019) – Federal Resources, a leading government solutions provider, announced today that they have expanded their training portfolio with the creation of a new initiative specifically designed to address the growing drug crisis in the United States. The Federal Resources CounterDrug Training Team leverages Federal Resources’ arsenal of the latest, innovative equipment and training solutions to support federal, state and local law enforcement efforts against the war on illegal drugs.

Established in 2019, the CounterDrug training program’s mission is to educate law enforcement teams about the evolving threat climate by utilizing a multi-layered approach; instructors will demonstrate the most innovative technologies, best practice policies and procedures to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to respond effectively to a drug related incident, then test new skills in hands-on, actual agent detection skill stations. Federal Resources has combined the best in-class instructors, with our manufacturer partners fielding the most modern equipment available, to deliver a scientifically validated curriculum that is reinforced with realistic hands-on training.

“We want our students to be not only competent, but also confident. Federal Resources’ focus is on expanding our support of federal, state, and local teams through this new training program. Topics covered in this course enable the personnel on the front lines and in government agencies to not only receive critical information regarding the use, spread, and effects of drugs, but also give them a hands-on experience so that they’ll be fully prepared for whatever drug related call comes in next. This course gives officers a huge boost of confidence in their equipment and procedures; they learn to safely field test these substances in the classroom and then take what they’ve learned to safely mitigate hazardous situations and save lives” said Gary Sharp, Director of Training at Federal Resources.

Federal Resources Training division offers 10 other courses, each with a unique focus and objective, that are relevant to the most pressing concerns that responders face today. With courses that extend from radiological response training to HazMat/WMD exposure and synthetic opioids, each course teaches students how to respond to a number of threat scenarios safely and efficiently.
