D.A.R.E Seal

D.A.R.E. is aimed at Alcohol, Tobacco, Inhalants, and Marijuana use. Often referred to as “gateway drugs,” these drugs are the most commonly used among young people. The theory is that if young persons will reject the use of these drugs the likelihood of moving to harder drugs will be significantly reduced.

D.A.R.E. is an excellent example of Community Policing at its best. It is schools, and parents, working together with law enforcement to combat a serious problem, drug use by our children.
