When illegal drugs are discovered in the course of an inspection or search of a vehicle operated by a Contractor employee, the employee and vehicle may be detained for a reasonable period of time necessary to turn the employee and the vehicle over to appropriate civil law enforcement officials, and action may be taken to suspend, revoke, or deny clinical privileges as well as installation driving privileges.
