New Brunswick Police Department’s lead D.A.R.E. officer, Lt. Raymond Trigg, with two D.A.R.E. graduates at the bowling alley party that the local PBA hosted for 800 recent D.A.R.E. graduates.

New Brunswick, NJ – The City of New Brunswick continued its more than 25-year pledge to help our kids live healthy and safe lives with a new class of nearly 800 D.A.R.E. graduates, all pledging to live free of the negative influences of drugs and alcohol.

Since 1991, The City of New Brunswick has used the national D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program in New Brunswick Public Schools to actively engage thousands of students in conversations about the repercussions of negative life choices associated with drugs, alcohol and violent behavior.

New Brunswick Police Department officers Lt. Raymond Trigg, Det. Harry Hudson, Det. Danny Gallardo and Officer Eddie Bobadilla visited fifth grade classrooms throughout the district this past semester, working with teachers to engage students with the D.A.R.E. curriculum and assisting them with public service projects.

Highlighted projects include Lord Stirling Community School’s bake sale, resulting in nearly $150 in proceeds to be donated to a children’s hospital; McKinley Community School’s volunteer efforts at Parker Home in Somerset, assisting elderly residents there; and Woodrow Wilson Elementary School’s creation of a slideshow presentation about the effects of drugs and alcohol.

“It is the efforts of law enforcement, our schools, and our community working together that makes D.A.R.E. a success in New Brunswick,” said Mayor Jim Cahill. “I thank them all for their dedication to this program and for recognizing its importance to ensure health and safety for the students in our community.”

As a reward for their successful completion of the program, the students were treated to a bowling alley excursion and D.A.R.E. t-shirts, funded by donations from New Brunswick PBA Local 23.
