    Fentanyl and drugs containing fentanyl are the leading cause of overdose deaths in America.  Law enforcement officers are encountering this deadly drug with increasing frequency during traffic stops, on calls for service, and while conducting searches of homes, business and jail facilities.  This presentation will discuss the danger of fentanyl and how to safely conduct presumptive tests in the field to determine if the substance contains  fentanyl.  The rapid and safe identification of fentanyl by law enforcement officers in the field is the first step to safely collecting and processing that critical evidence.
