(TORRINGTON, WY) – Elementary school students from one KOTA Territory community learn how to make the right decisions, with the help of local law enforcement.

Since 1986, the Torrington Police Department has been teaching the D. A. R. E. program to local students.

D. A. R. E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education.

The program teaches kids how to make good decisions, and how to say ‘no’ at the appropriate times.

This year, local law enforcement are working with 5th graders at Trail Elementary School.

“D. A. R. E. is a very positive program,” says Torrington Chief of Police, Billy Janes. “All of our curriculum deals with how you can make it through high school without trying things… without getting involved with things that are illegal.”

Students meet with local police officers for D. A. R. E. once a week, for 14 weeks.
