Stillwater, MN—Minnesota D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) welcomed 16 law enforcement candidates into Minnesota D.A.R.E. Class #50 on Monday, April 4, 2022. The intensive two-week training was hosted by the Minnesota D.A.R.E. and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in Stillwater, MN.

After a pause in training, due to Covid 19, Minnesota D.A.R.E. conducted the first of two officer training sessions (next session-July) scheduled to get current programs back up and expand to areas that lost their programming due to challenging times.

Minnesota D.A.R.E. just celebrated our 32nd anniversary. D.A.R.E. continues to be the largest community policing program in the state of Minnesota reaching over 60,000 students annually. D.A.R.E. in Minnesota has approximately 230 specially trained officers who teach in the classrooms, statewide, forming relationships with our children and families in addition to educating. Our adaptable program builds trust and confidence by eliciting the input of the school staff and families and is tailored to a neighborhood’s unique cultural and social-economic dynamics. D.A.R.E. brings curriculum-trained officers into the classrooms to form positive relationships, which has become even more important in recent times.
