The now-international program originated in Los Angeles in 1983.

This was the 31st annual culmination ceremony for the Hasbrouck Heights School district which is run by the Hasbrouck Heights Police Department. Sgt. Alan Baker had been the educator for the program, during which the children had been carefully instructed on the consequences of drug use. In addition to discussion of illegal drugs, alcohol and tobacco use was also talked about. D.A.R.E. sessions took place once a week for ten weeks, with teacher-led practice I the classrooms leading up to graduation from the program.
