HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ — The Hasbrouck Heights Police Department treated the town’s fifth grade students to a party for successfully completing the D.A.R.E. program.

Over 200 students from Lincoln School, Euclid School, and Corpus Christi School attended a private party at Urban AIr in South Hackensck. According to Detective Sergeant Alan Bake, the borough’s D.A.R.E. officer, last year’s graduates, the current sixth graders, were also invited due to scheduling conflicts with their event last year. The students had unlimited use of the indoor park, including rock climbing, dodge ball, jungle gym, ropes and ladders, and an obstacle course. Dinner included pizza and a drink.

Established in 1983, DARE stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education, and focuses on the D.A.R.E. decision-making process, whose mission is “Teaching students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives,” according to the group’s website. It is a weekly, in-school program led by Detective Sergeant Alan Baker who talks to the students about drugs, bullying, good decision making and problem solving.
