This SFST is a 24-hour course that will guide police officers through the traffic stop, the face-to-face interview, SFSTs, processing, report writing, and courtroom testimony. By incorporating classroom, dry run, and practical exercises, officers will be better prepared to detect and remove impaired drivers, making our roads safer for every Minnesotan.
