Welcome to the A.D.A.P.T. Program
The mission of the ADAPT program is the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse among students in Texas through the increased training of campus law enforcement officers. ADAPT are statewide training programs for campus law enforcement officers funded through a grant received from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
There are two ADAPT trainings available to officers that work on school campuses. One of the courses is specifically for officers that work on or near College campuses and the other course is for officers that work as SROs or for ISD Police Departments. Both of the classes are 8 hours long and free for any officer that wishes to attend.
If you are a TCOLE certified instructor, and have an interest in working with the FRIDAY and/or ADAPT training programs, you are in luck! The FRIDAY (Focus on Reducing Impaired Driving Among Youth) training program and the ADAPT (Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Training) training program are currently seeking instructors.
Candidates should have knowledge of and interest in:
· The dynamics of underage drinking and substance usage
· Handling underage impaired drivers
· Improving law enforcement's response to these issues
· Coalition experience preferred
· Campus experience for ADAPT instructors only
