    The Commission has established procedures and identified laboratories to conduct law enforcement applicant drug testing in accordance with R 28.14203, Non-medical selection qualifications.

    R 28.14203 Non-medical selection qualifications.

    Rule 203.  A person selected to become a law enforcement officer under the act shall meet all of the following requirements:

    (h) Test negative for ilicit use of controlled substances under the following conditions:

    (i) The process used to detect the presence of a controlled substance and the laboratory used to conduct the test shall be approved by the commission.

    (ii) An applicant who tests positive, refuses to submit to a test, or fails to report for a test, shall not be eligible for training or licensing for 2 years after a test. An applicant who tests positive may request an opportunity to show cause to the commission why the test results were not indicative of an illicit use of a controlled substance.
