This program is offered as an educational program in the classroom to prevent or reduce drug abuse and violence among children and youth. The emphasis is to help students recognize and resist the many direct and subtle pressures that influence them to experiment with alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, inhalants, or other drugs, or to engage in violence.
"Keepin' It Real"
New for 2014, is the "Keepin' It Real" curriculum. This curriculum focuses on the importance of making good choices and decisions in all areas of life. Further, it teaches the students to practice good decision making and role modeling for others to see.
Our D.A.R.E. officers are committed to the schools in an effort to establish a relationship with each student and to let them know police officers are resources to our community and should be looked to for help and not be feared.
