D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education)

Project D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is conducted in area public and parochial schools at the fifth grade levels.  This program, which has won international acclaim, began as a joint effort between the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Unified School District. 

Students are given lessons in a classroom setting by uniformed Mokena Police Officers on how to act in their own best interest when faced with high-risk, low-gain choices and to resist peer pressure and other influences in making their personal choices regarding tobacco smoking, tobacco advertising, drug abuse, inhalants, alcohol consumption, health, social networking, and bullying.  The D.A.R.E. curriculum culminates with a high-energy graduation ceremony that includes individual student awards for personal essays regarding their D.A.R.E. experience.
