As you may know, we are hosting a D.A.R.E. Officer Training class at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training. This class will be held from Monday, January 13th to Friday, January 24th, 2020. The best news of all is this training is tuition free. Furthermore, if you are staying at the academy, the lodging may also be free.

This is a great time to start a new D.A.R.E. program in your community because D.A.R.E. America will provide free workbooks for the first year. This reduces the costs for your agency and helps with new program implementation. There is still more good news: Did you know that the new D.A.R.E. program is “keepin’ it REAL?”

  • keepin’ it REAL is on the National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices.
  • keepin’ it REAL meets national Common Core educational standards.
  • keepin’ it REAL offers multiple years of intervention (Elementary, Middle, and High School).
  • Curricula is comprehensive and includes: responding to bullying, internet safety, teen suicide prevention and more.

Please take a look at the training announcement. Let me know if you have any questions. I am here to h-e-l-p!
