Why is D.A.R.E. taught by a Police Officer?
The D.A.R.E. curriculum is taught by Police Officers whose training and experience give them the background needed to answer the challenging questions often posed by young students about drugs and crime. Prior to entering the D.A.R.E. program, officers undergo 80 hours of special training in areas such as child development, classroom management, teaching techniques, and communication skills. The kids also get a chance to get to know a local police officer. This opens the communication lines between law enforcement and students.
