As a police officer for the University of Illinois Police Department, Ryan works to educate the community about DUI and drug related issues. Ryan is a certified Drug Recognition Expert (DRE), and has completed hundreds of hours of training related to drugs and the impact they have on the human body. He serves as a Field Training Officer, R.A.D. Instructor, and Crisis Intervention Team Officer. Ryan has provided training and presentations to thousands of students related to general law enforcement operations, alcohol/drug safety, theft prevention, diversity and inclusion, and police-citizen relations. He travels to conferences around the nation speaking on the topic of drugs and their impact on communities. He is recognized as a leading voice when it comes to drug training and prevention in higher education.

Ryan will discuss how the legalization of cannabis is changing the landscape of college campuses. He will explore issues surrounding prevention, education, and enforcement that are troubling campus administrations and police departments across the nation, and will explain data that has come out of states where cannabis has been legalized. Current trends will be examined, including why they exist and some of the dangers that come with different forms of cannabis. Participants will leave understanding why changes in cannabis laws are impacting their campuses, even if they are in a state that hasn’t passed a form of legalized cannabis. They will also have greater knowledge about cannabis and what they can do to help stop issues before they hit their campus.

This webinar is appropriate for campus administrators, residential life staff, student conduct & affairs, and campus safety or police. Those new to the field as well as more experienced professionals will benefit from the presented material.
