Is there a certain protocol that probation officers have to follow while administering a drug test?
I had a sample taken taken by my probation officer (saliva) and I am wondering if they have a certain protocol to go by when sealing the drug test. I was never shown by her that the sample was sealed correctly and did not sign or initial the seal like I normally have to in other drug tests administered by another company.
Yes there is............................................................................................
