Law Enforcement Is A Risky Business

Psychemedics handcuffs the risks of drug abuse in the ranks.

Maintain a drug-free police force.

Psychemedics deters drug usage with unrivaled certainty of detection.

No professionals are closer to the crisis of drug abuse than those working in law enforcement. Officers in the field, lab technicians, and support staff serve as the first line of defense to the crime and toll in human lives that drugs-of-abuse bring with them.

Operating above reproach and maintaining credibility is everything for those in police work. And in an era where the abuse of legal and illicit drugs impacts virtually every workplace, keeping drugs out of a law enforcement agency is an essential step toward operating above reproach and ensuring credibility every day. 

Let that sink in.

Creating a drug-free law enforcement agency starts with identifying applicants who are substance abusers. And sustaining a drug free agency means deterring drug usage among employees from top to bottom.  It is what Psychemedics does better than anyone.   Anyone.

Things You Should Know

Five Reasons Psychemedics Is The World Leader For Drug Testing With Hair

All Hair Testing Is NOT The Same

It is all about our numbers being better than other hair testing labs.

• Unrivaled detection rate that is 2-3X the others.

• 60% less hair required for testing.  No trauma.  No drama.

• The only lab with FDA 510k clearance for every drug screen.

• Fastest turnaround time.  The speed you need.

For the numbers that matter most, Psychemedics is just better.

Tamper Proof Process Makes Cheating A Thing Of The Past

Urine is ideal when you want to identify usage in the past day or two. But to identify habitual users nothing is better than Psychemedics.

Our detection rate is unrivaled by any drug test.

Plus…we capture 90 days of usage patterns, enabling you to screen for habitual users and thwart short-term abstinence as an evasion tactic.

All the while detecting up 2-10X more users than other drug tests.

Detect The Most Commonly Abused Drugs

No drug test finds more drugs than Psychemedics. Not urine, oral fluids, or other hair tests. Our detection rate has been unrivaled for thirty years.

Our data shows that 20% of manufacturing industry drug users test positive for multiple drugs. Cocaine and Opioids make up the bulk and Amphetamines are up 2X in the past five years. You have reason to be concerned.

Certainty of Detection is what we deliver. Deterrence is what you get.
