I am a big supporter in Random Drug Testing on Government employees like Police officers, Fire department, Teachers etc...
In the state of Washington they are trying to remove the ban that these unions have on NO random drug testing. We need this ban removed. Let's end corruption! We pay these people to do a job and not on trust that they won't do drugs.
OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Random drug tests could become a job requirement for police officers in the state of Washington.
The legislation is being introduced just days after a Seattle police officer took his own life when confronted about cocaine that didn't make it to an evidence locker.
Rep. Mike Hope, an officer with the Seattle Police Department, believes he and his co-workers should be randomly drug-tested on a routine basis.
Hope, R-Lake Stevens, plans to introduce a bill this week to require such tests not only for police, but also firefighters and state troopers as well.
Please Support Mandatory Random Drug Testing in your state.
