SRO Deputy Austin Mueller Presents a Graduation Certificate at Bossier Elementary School on November 30, 2018.
Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington joined Bossier Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. officers and school leadership at Bossier Elementary School to congratulate the school’s 5th graders as they participated in a Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program graduation ceremony last week.
Led by D.A.R.E. officer Deputy Austin Mueller, the graduates will join a total 1,272 students who will graduate from D.A.R.E. at 12 elementary schools in Bossier Parish this fall semester. Each elementary school has its own school resource officer who also serves as the D.A.R.E. instructor.
Bossier Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. officers know they have their hands full in teaching 5th graders how to make wise life decisions as they move into middle school and face increased peer pressure. The deputies don’t sugarcoat the facts and ensure the children are as best prepared to deal with such things as drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and bullying, and emphasize the importance of being responsible for their actions.
Here are the D.A.R.E. graduations that took place this semester:
- Plantation Park Elementary, December 6
- Apollo Elementary, December 7
- Stockwell Place Elementary, December 7
- Benton Elementary, December 12
- Central Park Elementay, December 12
- Plain Dealing Elementary, December 14
- Kingston Elementary, December 17
- Meadowview Elementary, December 17
- Legacy Elementary, December 18
- Princeton Elementary, December 19
- Kerr Elementary, December 20
The D.A.R.E program is a semester-long curriculum taught by Sheriff’s deputies that emphasizes good decision skills for young people to avoid bullying, drugs, violence and other harmful behaviors. Students are also taught confidence-building and coping skills.
Deputies teach the D.A.R.E. Decision Making Model: D – Define: Describe the problem, challenge or opportunity. A – Assess: What are your choices? R – Respond: Make a choice. Use the facts and information you have gathered. E – Evaluate: Review your decision.
