The D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program is taught in schools by specially trained police officers. Positive and substantive, it relies on accurate information and an upbeat approach. D.A.R.E. officers visit with students in the classroom, conduct faculty workshops, and present programs to teacher/parent organizations. This approach provides a constructive and highly visible presence to the students and community. Until drug abuse is a thing of the past, D.A.R.E. will continue to be in the forefront to preventative measures.
