Officer Fuller taught students good decision making while building trust between community & law enforcement

Their D.A.R.E. Officer visited eighty Kindergarten students at Perry Hall on October 25, 2023 to talk about safety and good decision-making. The D.A.R.E. program has been taught in the Baltimore County schools for more than 30 years.

Children in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms throughout the country today face a multitude of high-risk circumstances including the temptation to use drugs and alcohol, violence, bullying, and internet safety, not to mention the fear of school violence.

The D.A.R.E. program teaches students decision-making skills that equip them to lead safe and healthy lives. Lessons include the dangers of drug abuse, how to resist and refuse peer pressure, and how to take a stand against bullying. The D.A.R.E. program is designed to boost students’ social skills, enhance self-esteem, and provide tools to help them make responsible decisions.

Baltimore County Police Department teaches the program to more than 1700 students in 12 schools during the course of the school year. Funding for the D.A.R.E. program is provided in part through fundraisers, grants, and donations.
