Drug Cases

Urinalysis results may be used as evidence in disciplinary actions and in all adverse administrative actions, except if a member:

  • Voluntarily submits to a treatment and rehabilitation program before the receipt of an order to appear for a lawful urinalysis;
  • Is tested as part of a limited use safety mishap investigation; or
  • Is tested as part of a command-directed urinalysis.

However, urinalysis results from the above circumstances may still be used as a basis for separation for drug abuse, although the characterization of service may not be Under Other Than Honorable Conditions.
