DARE = Drug Abuse Resistance Education
- DARE is a preventative education program originally developed by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Unified School District in 1983. The goal was to find an alternative technique to curb drug use. The program was so successful that it is now being taught worldwide.
- DARE is not the solution to all drug abuse problems. However, it is an opportunity for law enforcement to educate children on the dangers of drug abuse. This also a great opportunity for children to develop a relationship with community law enforcement professionals.
