Louisa County High School students participated in an “IDrive” session on September 19, 2017, with members of the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police on-hand showing students how deputies and troopers do their job. Students learned how law enforcement officers conduct field sobriety tests.

The class helps students know what to expect of officers during an arrest, as well as how they can avoid troublesome scenarios in the first place.

Students also got to try out goggles that, when worn, simulate the effects of drinking too much alcohol. The goggles made a big impact on students as they tried walking in straight lines and driving between traffic cones.

“I thought it would be easier,” LCHS student Ashia Carey said. “It was really hard. I could not see at all.”

Corporal Robert Sarnoski with the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office says that in today’s world, communicating clearly with young adults crucial for building relationships.

“With all the things that go on the world, so many difficulties and all the stresses, it’s important drivers understand what officers expect from them. It’s also important the other way around too, that the encounter is professional, safe and everyone has a positive experience.”
