Officers involved with the City of New Brunswick’s D.A.R.E. Program. (L-R) Officer Eddie Bobadilla, Det. Danny Gallardo, Lt. Raymond Trigg, Officer Hector Lugo and Det. Harry Hudson.

The 28th class of New Brunswick kids to pledge to live healthy and safe lives graduated from the City’s D.A.R.E. program on May 23.

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

Approximately 800 fifth graders graduated from this year’s program, taught by New Brunswick Police Department officers Lt. Raymond Trigg, Det. Harry Hudson, Det. Danny Gallardo and Officer Eddie Bobadilla.

Our officers visited 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.

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